We want you to know the following…
We are diligently cleaning, practicing social distancing, and have prohibited meetings and visitors except for those essential to the care of our youth.
Counseling: Our counselors are available by Video Visits/Telehealth. We are accepting new clients. We are meeting with our clients and their families and have moved to virtual counseling sessions. Updates can be found on our counseling page. We understand there is the potential for heightened anxiety and other issues during this time and we are committed to being available for our clients.
Prevention: With schools operating remotely, we are not providing any sessions in schools at this time but are continuing to work with local districts to offer best-practices in deterring substance use and promoting community-level change to impact our youth.
Snowball: Our Fall Operation Snowball 2020 scheduled for October is going virtual. Registration opening soon, please reach out through the Snowball page on our website for more information.
Housing: We remain in operation with modifications and suggestions for residents and are following a detailed safety and prevention plan to limit and prevent the spread of potential infection.
Cornerstone: Our youth-in-care facility continues to run 24/7 providing care for our 7 youth in residence. We are allowing only essential staff and visitors.
Transitional Housing: Our young adults are home from school and/or receiving limited or reduced hours at work. They are following the same guidance from the WHO to prevent the spread of infection. Our staff is checking in on them daily via phone and virtual platforms.
If you’d like to help 360 at this time…
Donation of basic supplies. Like everyone, we need toilet paper, wipes, and other disinfectants. While shopping, if available, please grab an extra for us and schedule a drop off at the main office at 1305 Oswego Road in Naperville by calling or emailing Sarah Tesch at email@example.com or 630-961-2992 ext. 1127.
Cash donations. We are in the same situation as many, where we need to pay the bills when revenue is uncertain. We rely on our community to help us maintain our programs that guide young clients to safety and healing. The immediate future is unknown.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support! You are a valuable part of the 360 family.
