Housing & Shelter

By providing shelter, transitional housing and quick access to permanent housing, Compass gives families the stability necessary to rebuild lives.

Adult Education & Homelessness Prevention

Compass helps parents acquire the tools and develop the skills they need to find housing stability and fulfilling employment. Parents have access to a wide range of services that support their education, employment goals and promote self-sufficiency.


The creation of strong relationships is at the core of Compass' work with families. Through one-on-one, family and group work with skilled counselors and therapists, Compass helps families tap their inner strength in order to reach their full potential.

Early Childhood Education

At Compass, children get the best possible start in life with specialized, enriched programs for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Compass also provides advocacy, after school programming and enrichment activities for children of all ages who participate in our six programs for families.
