About 360Kids Support Services:

360°kids was founded in 1987 as two separate organizations: Markham Neighbourhood Support Centre and Youth Housing Markham. After the two entities merged in 1998, the charity was renamed 360°kids Support Services. 360°kids provides a wide range of services in York, ON that combat youth homelessness and help homeless youth rebuild their lives. Ontario is home to approximately 315,000 youths not in employment or education training. These youth are six times more likely to be in a homeless shelter on any given night, costing the provincial government over $25 million per year.

360°kids assists youth facing housing instability through four main programs: Housing, Education, Employment, and Health & Well-Being. In F2020, 360°kids served 3,921 youths. No spending per program was provided by the charity.

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 female survivors of human trafficking, aged 16-26. Among its housing programs, 360°kids provided youth 8,369 bed nights off the streets. In F2020, this program helped a total of 193 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 F2020, 42 youths earned a total of 167 high school credits through the program. 360°kids also provided $16,900 in scholarships to 10 youths.

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 receiving support while working. In F2020, this program served 439 youths.

Health and Well-Being: Additional wellness and support services provide participants with access to recreation opportunities, counselling, and healthy meals. In F2020, 65,316 food supports were provided to 1,901 youths. The charity also provided 475 formal counselling sessions to kids.

Note: Ci used program, administrative, and fundraising costs as reported on the charity’s T3010 form. Amortization has been removed from program, administrative, and fundraising costs pro-rata. No total expenditures line was reported in the charity's T3010 filing with the CRA. The T3010 breakdown did not reconcile with total spending reported in the audited financial statements, thus Ci removed an unreconciled difference of $70k in F2020 and $2.6k in F2019 from program costs. The values for donated goods in kind used in programs were removed from program costs to reflect monetary spending on programs.
