Donate Now

Your donations are put to use right away to support Kaleidoscope’s vital programs and services for Chicago children, youth and families healing from abuse and neglect. Give now to support our innovative case management and clinical services to build resourcefulness, resiliency and supportive relationships.

A lot has changed for us in the last few months, but our work doesn’t stop – and our teams are more critical than ever as children are away from the professionals who can identify and report abuse.

About Kaleidoscope

Founded in 1973, Kaleidoscope is a non-profit child welfare agency in Chicago. Each year, we serve more than 500 young people – ranging in age from birth to 21 – who are healing from trauma. Most of our clients have experienced neglect or abuse, and many have also been exposed to substance abuse, extreme poverty and other concerns.

As a result of these traumatic events, our clients have specialized mental health, behavioral, medical and/or pregnancy and parenting needs. Through our services, we ensure their safety, assist them in creating a stable support system, and help them overcome trauma to lead healthy, happy lives. Learn more about our services.
