Naperville Township has given $150,000 to a local not-for-profit that helps young people in the community.
The township presented 360 Youth Services with a giant check to help fund their programming.
360 offers prevention education, counseling, and shelter services for children and young adults in the area.
The organization’s staff says the money comes at a time when the government’s financial backing of social services is dwindling.
“I think the township is realizing that they have a responsibility to these services and they want to work with 360 to really develop some innovative things for the youth of the Naperville Township and we’re really excited about it,” said Ron Hume, 360 Youth Services’ Executive Director.
360 Youth Services also named Angela Michalak as their new Township Youth Services Director.
“I will be the linkage between the township and 360 Youth Services, doing needs evaluations, determining what the needs in the community are for our youth and then creating programming around that,” said Michalak. “That will also include individual and family counseling as well as group programming for kids in the community.”
