I Am You 360 ™

Plant Seeds of Hope and Watch Our Youth Grow and Become Fruitful.

Who We Are…

I AM YOU 360™ is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

The State of Arizona is home to 20,000 vulnerable youth. They are saying “I AM Somebody”. 

They are not a barcode or a file in a cabinet. They must be unmuted. Their voices must be heard. They must be treated with dignity and the respect they deserve, to feel dignified and not be judged by their circumstance. Through self-awareness, self-development, and the development of life skills, this is possible. The “ I Am Somebody”  movement is holding the privileged community, city, and State accountable for encouraging investment now or paying the ultimate price later. 

“I Am You 360″ chooses to pay now. “I Am You 360,” provides an array of holistic services and programs promoting positivity to directly impact the youth. 

It is our desire, our passion to remove the bandaid and empower our most vulnerable youth. Sew them back into the fabric of our community by building their self-worth, self-esteem, and self-love. We can break the cycle and create generational change in the following ways: Personalized custom hygiene products and brand new home accessories.

Hygiene bags are refilled every 6 weeks. (The bags value $25.00 to $45.00 per person) Because “ I am You 360” believes in the empowerment of the whole person, we offer the “I Am You 360” homeownership program for homeless young adults ages 18-22, particularly those who have aged out of foster care. 

Will you join the “I Am You 360” movement?

There is over 20,000 most vulnerable youth (Semi-Annual Child Welfare Reporting Period July 1, 2020- December 31, 2020) I Am You 360 has served over 3,000 youth and families with our programs and services within Pima County, Pascua Yaqui Tribe, Tohona Odham Tribe, and Maricopa County.

What We Do…

I Am You 360 has gone above and beyond to give back to community through a unique blend of philanthropy and community assistance, by creating employment, mentoring, and development opportunities for youth.

Morgan Turner, a survivor of physical and emotional abuse, homeless and sleeping in cars; to graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Dean College (in Franklin, MA) & Associate of Science in Athletic Training, receiving not only an academic scholarship but an athletic scholarship. Morgan is currently finishing pre-requisite classes to apply for her Masters in Occupational Therapy. Growing up as a queer Black girl in Winter Park and Orlando, Florida with no home stability, Morgan was often bullied and teased for being different and not having many material things due to financial hardships. Through these various hardships Morgan prevailed through support of her esteemed mentor and by having faith in the powers above. Morgan has devoted her energy to working to inspire and build trust with youth who have and continue to live through and experience similar trials and tribulations; providing hope and a safe space for these marginalized yet strong and courageous youth. Reflecting back on her own experiences, Morgan wrote a song called, “I Am Somebody” as her values strongly aligned with Desiree Cook’s non-profit organization. This song tells the story of resiliency and hope, reaching for listeners’ ears and souls. Letting them know that they are not alone and that they are so much more than a moment. That they too can and will overcome any challenges in their lives that they have faced or that they may face in the future.

We take pride in IMPACTING OUR COMMUNITY! We appreciate the support from the local Arizona media.

I want to thank you for the information in your class. I was able to learn some new things on how to care for my girls hair. I especially appreciated learning to detangle prior to shampooing, detangling after conditioning as well as the tools for taking care of their hair.

I would recommend your class for the new foster parent who has no experience caring for curly natural hair.

Thank you so much for the class and all the information.

– Staci B.

I really liked this one because they made me feel more confident about myself and show who I am.

– Destiny C.

Something that I took out of this presentation is how she told us all that we were Queens and Kings, and said we are all special in our own way. She also said don’t change yourself to be like others.

– Ashley N.

They said to act like Queens, we should be nice to people and respect others. And they were saying help others and have confidence.

– B.D.

Spending time with you has encouraged me by boosting myself confidence and being able to have a strong female role model to look up to ans share parts of myself that most people don’t know.

– Alexis C.

I was finally able to find some folks in need of hygiene bags. She gave me permission to share her story and take this photo.
She is attempting to strike it out on her own and get out of a bad relationship. She was trying to get on her feet so that she could protect her children. With your help we gave her one less thing to worry about.

– Officer Apodaca
