360ºkids began over 29 years ago as two separate agencies that were developed to address the needs of the communities of York Region. The Markham Neighbourhood Support Centre was created to respond to the needs of young families with children who sought support and ways to learn about child-rearing. Youth Housing Markham provided safe and supportive housing for youth who could no longer live at home. These two agencies eventually amalgamated in 1998 to form Pathways for Children, Youth, and Families of York Region Inc. The organization continued to offer programs and supports to both families and their children and to homeless and at-risk youth in York Region for 15 more years. 

In 2013 the organization was selected to deliver programs and support services to at-risk youth. The name 360ºkids refers to the comprehensive approach that the organization takes to assisting at-risk youth and surrounding them with care, recognizing that these kids need a wide range of supports to help them rebuild their lives. This holistic approach is enshrined in their slogan: Surrounding kids in crisis with care. 

360ºkids now serves over 3,400 youth each year from every municipality in York Region and this number has grown significantly since their move to the Richmond Hill Hub, operating the youth hub and offering even more essential services to youth.
