Nightstop provides a bed for the night for young people who need it, in a moment of crisis.

Providing a safety net to those forced to leave their home, Nightstop places young people in a safe and warm home for the night, provided by a vetted and approved volunteer.

It prevents young people from sleeping on the streets, “couch surfing”, or staying in unsuitable accommodations where they would be at risk of abuse. The use of spare rooms in a positive environment makes a huge difference to young people in crisis.

360°kids is proud to be bringing this program to Canada.  To be able to offer this invaluable service to young people we need Hosts. Hosts will receive remuneration to assist with expenses. If you can offer a room to a young person and are interested in becoming a host or finding out more, contact Nightstop at 905-475-6694 or email us at nightstop@360kids.ca
