About Push for Change:

Our PURPOSE with The Push for Change is twofold:
1. We will not rest until we have created sustainable change for Canadian Youth.
2. We will not be satisfied until we have a nation of people in action – we want to engage Canadians in thinking differently about the extraordinary impact we can have when we work together, and then motivate them to get in unstoppable action to effect change in our country one community at a time.
We want the Push for Change to be much more than a trek to raise awareness and money. We want it to be a call to action, to get involved now, and for the long term. We believe that ending youth homelessness in Canada is possible!

About 360 Kids:

360ºkids began over 26 years ago as two separate agencies that were developed to address the needs of the communities of York Region. The Markham Neighborhood Support Centre was developed to respond to the needs of young families with children who sought support and ways to learn about childrearing. Youth Housing Markham provided safe and supportive housing for youth who could no longer live at home. A volunteer committee worked to create two group homes that would support 13 homeless youth. 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 many more years.
