About 360°Kids

360°Kids has been helping families, children and youth in our communities for over 25 years. Our primary focus is providing aid and support to at-risk and homeless youth. It is estimated that on any given day there are over 300 homeless youth in York Region. Family breakdown, addiction issues and abuse are just some of the reasons these youth become homeless but regardless of the circumstances, they are just kids and they don't deserve to suffer the way they do. 360°Kids operates a variety of programs to give these kids the support they need to reach a state of safety and stability. We inspire them to rebuild their lives and we help them to overcome the obstacles they face. It is a complete 360° approach to assisting these kids and it has been successful in helping thousands of youth become healthy, stable adults who contribute to our communities.
