The kids at Compass Health need your help today!  Thinking ahead to the new school year, many of the over 4,500 kids that Compass serves will not have the support they need to be successful this year.

Did you know that according to the National Institute of Mental Health, just over 20% or 1 in 5 kids will have a seriously debilitating mental health disorder in their lifetimes? Did you also know that the majority of the kids Compass Health serves come from households that are making below 50% of the average income for our region, or approximately $3,700 a month for a family of four?

This is where you come in.

We want to make sure that every family that comes to Compass Health is able to provide and give their kids not only the therapeutic treatment that they need to succeed in life, but the opportunity to enjoy fun and  transformative activities every kid deserves growing up… you can make sure that they have the ability to do so!

In addition to the mental health services that Compass Health provides, we offer a number of specialty programs just for kids that are supported 100% by generous community members like you.

  • We provide specialty camp programs like our annual Camp Outside the Box, which helps kids who have mental health issues that keep them from being successful in more traditional camp programs in our region.
  • We also run Camp Mariposa, which is offered six times a year and helps kids who have been seriously affected by substance abuse in their families.
  • Families who are in crisis situations and would otherwise end up on the street at night will not because Compass Health runs the Motel Voucher Program, giving families in crisis a warm and safe place to stay for up to 7 days.
  • We are also able to help kids who do not have the available resources at home purchase new school supplies each year to make sure they start the year off with everything they need to be successful!

All of this happens with the support of our trained and dedicated clinical staff who help them succeed every step of the way.

But without your support, we cannot offer programs like this to every child who needs them.

  • A gift of $50 buys basic school supplies for the year.
  • A gift of $100 provides one educational field trip during Camp Outside the Box.
  • A gift of $200 gives a family of four up to 7 days in a local motel.
  • A gift of $500 provides one camper a full weekend at Camp Mariposa.
