Nightstop is a program offered by 360°kids, which provides temporary emergency shelter and support to young people experiencing homelessness in community host homes.

Our goal is to raise $120,000, to support the program. To date our Nightstop program has placed 338 youth with host homes providing 887 bed nights out of emergency shelters or unsafe living situations.

To achieve our goal, we have launched the “Power of 100 Campaign”, which aims to gather the support of 100 individuals willing to give $100 a month for 12 months or make a one-time donation of $1200 to continue to offer this valuable program in York Region.

Your donation will help fund the recruitment and training of new hosts, emergency supplies and resources, and critical ongoing support.

360°kids has been supporting young people in York Region who are at-risk or may be experiencing homelessness for 34 years. We inspire and assist youth to rebuild their lives through four pillars of support; Housing, Education, Employment and Heath & Wellbeing.

  • Q. How will my donation specifically support the Nightstop program?

    Your donation to the Nightstop program through the Power of 100 Campaign will play a crucial role in providing emergency shelter and support to young people experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness. Specifically, your donation will be used in the following ways:

    1. Recruitment and Training of Hosts: Your contribution will support the recruitment efforts to find compassionate individuals or families willing to open their homes as temporary shelters for young people in need. It will also cover the training costs involved in preparing the hosts to provide a safe and supportive environment.
    2. Emergency Supplies and Resources: Your donation will help ensure that the Nightstop program has the necessary emergency supplies and resources readily available for the young people. This can include items like food, clothing, toiletries, bedding, and other essential items they may require during their stay with host families.
    3. Ongoing Support: The funds raised through the Power of 100 Campaign will provide critical ongoing support to the young people placed with host families. This support can range from counseling services, educational assistance, life skills training, transportation, and any other necessary support to help them stabilize their lives and work towards a brighter future.
  • Q. What emergency supplies and resources will my donation help provide?
    1. Basic Necessities: Your donation can help ensure that young people have access to necessities such as food, clothing, personal hygiene products, and bedding. These items are essential for their well-being and comfort during their stay with host families.
    2. Transportation: Your donation can help cover transportation costs, enabling young people to access necessary services, such as drop off/pick up at the host family residence, medical appointments, counseling sessions, educational institutions, job interviews, or other important destinations. Reliable transportation can be a significant barrier for young people experiencing homelessness, and your support can help remove that obstacle.
  • Q. How will the critical ongoing support be provided to the young people in the program?

    Critical ongoing support provided to the young people in the Nightstop program is essential for their well-being and journey towards stability. Your donation to the Power of 100 Campaign will contribute to ensuring this support continues. Here’s how the ongoing support is typically provided:

    1. Case Management: Case workers work closely with the young people to assess their needs, develop personalized support plans, and provide ongoing guidance. They act as a consistent point of contact, offering emotional support, advocacy, and connecting them to necessary resources.
    2. Counseling and Mental Health Services: Young people facing homelessness often experience trauma, mental health challenges, or emotional distress. Your donation can help fund counseling services, therapy sessions, and mental health support to address their emotional well-being and provide coping mechanisms.
    3. Educational and Employment Assistance: Access to education and employment opportunities are crucial for young people to break the cycle of homelessness. Ongoing support may include assistance with school enrollment, tutoring, career counseling, job readiness training, resume building, and job placement services.
    4. Life Skills Training: Developing essential life skills is essential for young people to thrive independently. Ongoing support may involve providing workshops, training sessions, and mentorship programs that focus on financial literacy, budgeting, time management, communication skills, and other practical skills necessary for their long-term success.
    5. Follow-up and Aftercare: Even after transitioning to the Nightstop program, young people still need support and guidance to maintain stability. Your donation may contribute to follow-up services and aftercare programs, ensuring that they have ongoing access to resources and assistance as they navigate independent living.
  • Q. Can I choose to donate more than $100 a month if I have the means to do so?

    Absolutely! You are welcome to donate a custom amount directly on the donation form. Please locate the ‘Custom Amount’ option underneath the suggested donation amounts. There, you can enter the specific amount you wish to contribute.

  • Q. Can I donate a custom amount less than $100 a month?

    While the Power of 100 Campaign focuses on gathering support from individuals willing to contribute $100 a month for 12 months, we understand that not everyone may be able to commit to that specific amount.

    To donate a custom monthly amount or make a one-time donation, please locate the ‘Custom Amount’ option underneath the suggested donation amounts. There, you can enter the specific amount you wish to contribute. Please keep in mind that donations below $100 a month will not be considered as part of the official Power of 100 Campaign member.

    Regardless of the amount you contribute, your donation will still make a meaningful impact and help support the Nightstop program in providing emergency shelter and support to young people experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness. We deeply appreciate your generosity and commitment to making a difference in the lives of vulnerable young individuals in our community.
