Our Approach

Compass Center believes in meeting people where they are without judgment and supporting their journeys forward with compassionate and practical help. Our prevention, crisis, and long-term self-sufficiency services help support gender equity and economic justice and work to address intimate-partner violence in our community.

Our services

Compass Center's free and voluntary services guide individuals and their families toward safety, self-sufficiency and empowerment. We offer equal access to opportunities regardless of economic or gender status. Many of our services are also offered in Spanish.
