In 2017, Compass Health will be celebrating 115 years of service to our communities!
Compass Health was founded in 1902 by Lutheran Church members who were worried about children on the street and wanted a place that they could go for services. In time, our Federal campus in Everett became home to an orphanage, the Parkland Children's Home. And in1964, those services transitioned into residential treatment services for children to form the Luther Child Center.
Since 1995, many organizations including Olympic Mental Health, have come together to form Compass Health as we know it today. Many things have changed over the years, but one thing has always remained the same: our continued commitment to the quest for well-being throughout the communities that we serve.
People are always impressed to hear about the depth and breadth of the services that we provide and we are incredibly fortunate to have such dedicated staff of over 700 people who often times face challenging circumstances. Because of this great work, Compass Health is very highly regarded at the local, regional, state, and national levels. Because of your generosity and our mutual understanding of the importance of the behavioral health services that we offer, Compass Health continues to thrive and to champion the quest for well-being in our communities.
We have an extraordinary calling as an organization and your support for our mission helps to make it happen day in and day out.
