The agency started in 1971 as a youth outreach coalition in response to increasing numbers of adolescents in need. For the past 47 years we have counseled thousands of young people ages 10 to 25. Our licensed therapists provided support to 643 youth and families, representing more than 3,800 session hours last year. 360 Youth Services’ crisis intervention team works closely with nine local municipalities to assist young people who have run away or who are locked out of their homes. We operate 24 hours/day, 365 days a year and we respond within minutes to a phone call from local authorities. The agency introduced Cornerstone Group Home For Boys in 1985 where we provide transitional housing for young men ages 13 to 18. The house is located in Lisle and it is the only resource of its kind in DuPage County. 360 Youth Services holds a DCFS Child Welfare certification. We provide transitional housing for young men experiencing homelessness between the ages of 18 to 24, starting in 2000. We expanded operations in 2008 to include transitional housing for non-parenting women, which is the only shelter of its kind in DuPage County. In 2014, we were the first agency to offer transitional housing for LGBTQ youth in Illinois. 360 provides prevention outreach to more than 26,000 students annually. The agency has led thousands of high school students through leadership training via weekend retreats called Operation Snowball since 1986.
