Founded in 1971, 360 Youth Services has a rich history in the Naperville, Illinois and surrounding communities. A group of concerned parents, community and religious leaders recognized a need for professional, youth-centered services in the local community. First operating under the name of Naperville Community Outreach, the name was changed in 2011 to 360 Youth Services to better reflect the organization’s mission to provide life-changing services to youth through substance abuse prevention education, counseling and housing.
