Mission Possible 360 (“MP360”) is a non-profit social services organization based in San Antonio, Texas. We work with at-risk juveniles primarily in the near west, south and east areas of San Antonio.
The actual work of ministering to at-risk and troubled youth began informally by the MP360 founder, John Vacca in 2001. John had experienced the same life issues facing many troubled youth in San Antonio… abuse, violence, neglect, poverty, substance abuse and gang involvement. This slippery slope ended with John making poor choices, committing crimes and landing in prison. He had a spiritual awakening while in prison, found a new purpose for his life and resolved to focus his career helping others avoid making the same mistakes and chart a better course for their future.
In 2013, Mission Possible 360, Inc. was formally incorporated in the State of Texas. We have worked with hundreds at-risk young people and their families to deal with and overcome their traumatic past, to turn their lives around and to chart a new and better future.
Our only current full-time, paid staff member is John Vacca. However, the organization has several part-time capable and compassionate volunteers who also present elements of the program (particularly to females), mentor the young clients, provide help in preparing the young people for entering the work force, participate in a special “crossing the bridge” retreat, and work behind the scenes to help run and support the organization and its life-changing mission.
MP360 (and/or John Vacca) has partnered with or has current partnership arrangements with several individuals, like-minded non-profits, for-profit businesses, and government organizations.
Mission Possible 360 empowers at-risk young people in the San Antonio area to make life choices that positively impact their present behaviors and future direction through trauma-informed programs, individual counseling, community-based mentoring, job-readiness training and faith sharing.

Mission Possible 360 was incorporated in the State of Texas in 2013 and was approved by the IRS on February 22, 2013 as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit organization. However, the founder of MP360, John Vacca, had been working for several years before that time to develop programs and solutions to the poverty, abuse and violence problems facing local youth and their families.

The founder, staff and volunteers of MP360 are devoted to Judeo-Christian principles in their work at MP360 and in their daily lives. We expect high standards for ourselves and place high positive expectations on our young clients. We will strive to be good examples in our community and demonstrate honesty, integrity, compassion, humility and faithfulness.
