About 360Kids Support Services:

360°kids was founded in 1987 as two separate organizations: Markham Neighbourhood Support Centre and Youth Housing Markham.

A Charity Intelligence 2023 Top 100 Rated Charity

360°kids assists youth facing housing instability through four main programs: Housing, Education, Employment, and Health & Well-Being. In F2022, 360°kids served 1,476 youth. The charity does not provide a spending breakdown by its programs.

Housing: This program offers youth a variety of services that address their housing needs. 360°kids provides emergency, transitional, and longer-term housing, as well as specific housing for survivors of human trafficking. One of its services, Nightstop, connects young people with volunteers who have a spare bedroom for short-term stays. The HOPE program houses and supports females aged 16-26 who are survivors of human trafficking. Among its housing programs, 360°kids provided youth with 17,585 bed nights off the streets. In F2022, this program helped a total of 141 youths.

Education: This service helps homeless youth return to school through the iGrad program. In partnership with the York Region District School Board, students work towards earning a high school diploma by completing online courses. Although the courses are online, participants can access computers and support from a teacher during school hours. In F2022, 43 youths enrolled in the iGrad program. 360°kids also provided $26,900 in scholarships to youth.

Employment: As 75% of homeless youth in Ontario are unemployed, this program supports adolescents in securing work. 360°kids provides pre-employment training on budgeting, stress management, communication, and conflict resolution. Training may also include employment certification courses: Smart Serve, WHMIS, food handling, and first aid/CPR. Participants are then matched with employers and continue to receive support while working. In F2022, the charity provided 604 employment workshops and served 431 youths.

Health and Well-Being: Additional wellness and support services provide participants with access to recreational opportunities, counseling, and healthy meals. In F2022, the charity provided 571 formal counseling sessions and 1,371 life skills workshops to 1,476 youths.
