Our Mission is to provide life-changing services to youth through substance abuse prevention education, counseling and housing.
Our Vision is a community where all youth possess the necessary skills to successfully navigate life’s challenges.
Our History is rich and challenging. 360 Youth Services began in 1971 when a group of concerned parents, community, and religious leaders recognized the need for professional, youth-centered services in the Naperville community. They formed a council that eventually became a non-profit organization referred to as Naperville Community Outreach. In 2011, the organization changed its name to 360 Youth Services to better reflect its mission and vision.
Today, 360 Youth Services offers substance abuse prevention education, counseling, and housing. The organization serves youth and families in Naperville and the surrounding areas.
