A message from our CEO

I believe that young people have tremendous potential, limited only by the opportunities provided to them. At 360°kids, we will continue to work in partnership with the York Region communities to develop more and more opportunities, especially for youth who are most-at-risk of homelessness. I was drawn to the organization by the breadth of services offered to help ensure young people are supported and their potential realized, and I continue to be impressed by the organization’s truly wraparound approach to service provision. In making our services responsive to the changing needs of our young people, their voices need to be central to the work we do. In this way, we will ensure that we continue to provide relevant programs in a manner that helps each person we come in contact with feel the genuine care and concern we have for their well-being.

To that end, the staff at 360°kids are real heroes for me. Their work, day in, day out, is the key to the ongoing success of the organization and they need to be applauded for a job well-done. Their voices also need to be heard and their efforts supported. I am also very grateful for the many volunteers including our Board of Directors who do so much for 360°kids as they give of their time and resources in so many ways to keep the organization strong. I am pleased to be part of such an amazing team!

A message from our Chief Operating Officer

It’s more than just a roof over their heads and a meal. It’s knowing someone cares, it’s a family, it’s a home.

Having worked with 360ºkids in several different capacities over the years, I’m continually inspired by the youth we serve. While our incredible staff encourage and support our youth, it’s their strength and courage that provide motivation to us. We help youth to make positive changes in their lives, to overcome barriers and to move from crisis to a place of safety and security. At 360ºkids they find friendship and kindness in the most unexpected places. Our programs are innovative in that they meet people where they are at. Here, there is no shame in where you have come from or where you would like to go. Instead, our programs provide support and resources to help people live the life they desire.

I’m proud of the dynamic, innovative and vital programs provided throughout the Region by 360ºkids’ dedicated staff and volunteers. It is an organization that really cares, that really does believe that people matter. We are grateful to be a part of this community, honoured to give back and are rejuvenated every day by those we come in contact with.
