Home for the Holidays

This time of year is special for most all of us. It is a time to reflect on the year that has just passed. A time to give gifts and thanks to those in your life. A time to spend at home with friends and family.

But some among us do not have such options. For people facing the challenges of homelessness, this time of year is a hard reminder of what was had and lost... HOPE. Compass Health strives to build strong communities through building relationships. Our clients come from all backgrounds. Their stories are OUR stories. One area of positive community impact that Compass Health prides itself on is our Housing Programs.Every year we assist over 300 people transition from homelessness to stable housing. The average monthly income of the individuals that Compass Health assists in our Housing Program is $525. People like Garrick who shared his story:

The hundreds of other clients that we assist are facing similar struggles. Once housing is found for them, they still require assistance to make it a home. Costs for beds/ bedding, kitchen and bath items, cleaning supplies and personal care all add up — and can be overwhelming to our clients who are in a cycle of hopelessness. At Compass Health, we do all that we can to help lift them out of that cycle — and YOU CAN HELP!

Garrick is not alone. They have been in situations that most of us are fortunate to have never faced. But through all of the struggles Garrick has faced, the worst part was losing his hope. Compass Health’s Housing Program provided Garrick with a sliver of hope during a dark time. We are assisting over 300 other people, like Garrick, who are in need.
