Marist180, also formerly known as Marist Youth Care, was established in 1994 as Marist Community Services. It is a not-for-profit agency focused on helping young people at risk and their families. It provides support to unaccompanied migrant youth and young people, including juvenile offenders.
Marist Community Services evolved from the programmes run by the Marist Brothers in and after St Vincent's Boys Home closed.
The organisation was originally known as Marist Community Services, in 2002 its name was changed to Marist Youth Care and in 2016 it was changed to Marist180.
Marist180 manages records of St Vincent's Boys Home.
