To Our Community,

For more than a century, Compass Health has proudly served the most vulnerable members of our communities, helping those with mental health needs to find hope, recovery and purpose.

This work has never been more important. Behavioral health and homelessness challenges are some of the most persistent issues facing our region – compounded further in Snohomish County by higher rates of poverty, rapid population growth and demand for services that outpaces available resources.

That’s why Compass Health is leading the Broadway Campus Redevelopment, a three-phase initiative to transform a city block into a state-of-the-art regional center for behavioral health services. Phase I, a facility to house chronically homeless individuals, is now complete. Phase II – the project’s centerpiece – is a 72,000-square-foot clinical facility designed specifically to meet intensive mental health needs.

To fund these critical solutions, we’ve launched It’s Time: The Campaign for Compass Health, a $14 million capital campaign that represents 22 percent of the overall $64 million Phase II project cost.

Why this project, and why now? Because… it’s time:

  • It’s time to build the future of behavioral health with architecture, design and function that reflect the sophistication and clinical excellence of the world-class care delivered here.
  • It’s time to invest in solutions to our region’s most visible and pressing needs by preventing complex mental health conditions from escalating and diverting high-frequency use of emergency services.
  • It’s time to support recovery, hope and dignity through an environment purpose-built to empower community members with intensive behavioral health needs.
  • It’s time to create a magnet for mental health professionals with a workplace that attracts the team members needed to meet our region’s growing demand for care.
  • It’s time to act regionally with a state-of-the-art campus that will benefit community members, first responders, healthcare partners and more across Northwest Washington.

We’re thrilled and grateful that philanthropic organizations, lawmakers, business and community leaders and dedicated neighbors are championing the project and helping us to meet our fundraising goals. We hope you’ll join them, and us, in this historic endeavor to meet the increasing needs for behavioral health services, strengthening our community and ensuring our region flourishes for another century and beyond.

With gratitude,

Tom Sebastian & Alex de Soto

CHALLENGES TO MEET

A Behavioral Health Crisis

An estimated 26 percent of Americans 18 and older – about 1 in 4 adults – are impacted by a diagnosable behavioral health disorder during a given year. This includes people experiencing a crisis or feeling overwhelmed by life circumstances; those coping with serious emotional distress; and people who have mental health or substance use disorders interfering with their daily activities, work, school, or relationships. The situation has been exacerbated by the global pandemic and the opioid crisis.

The Local Landscape

Our region is challenged by increasing numbers of people living with severe mental health and substance abuse issues, often accompanied by homelessness. These issues are exacerbated by rapid population growth, increasing housing instability, and lack of timely and accessible behavioral health resources for people living in low-income situations. Other entities, such as hospitals, law enforcement, jails, and community responders are not intended or equipped to address these complex needs.

Homelessness

In Snohomish County, homelessness continues to increase dramatically. Particularly disconcerting is that the number of people experiencing chronic homelessness has grown to account for more than 50% of all people experiencing homelessness in Snohomish County, according to the 2022 Point in Time count.

Our Facilities

Our Broadway Campus in Everett is our largest and most comprehensive location. While the campus has served Compass Health well over the years, its main building was designed and built more than 70 years ago for an altogether different use. It is no longer able to meet the growing and changing needs of the community. It doesn’t provide the capacity to support our array of intensive services and is impractical and too costly to refurbish.

Hiring & Retention

Given the community behavioral health workforce shortage impacting Washington state and the nation, we need facilities that are modern, purpose-built, efficient and comfortable – reflecting the dignified care provided by our skilled mental health professionals. This will help ensure we attract and
retain the most talented clinicians and support staff in the field.

ACT

regionally with a state-of-the-art campus that will benefit community members, first responders, healthcare partners and more across Northwest Washington.

Phase I: Permanent Supportive Housing

Phase I includes 82 new units of housing, coupled with facilities for integrated treatment and support services for people with chronic behavioral health challenges. This five-story, multi-unit building, known as Andy's Place, is located on the northwest corner of the current Broadway Campus. The ground floor provides space for on-site program services including peer support, homeless outreach and housing stabilization.

Phase II: Intensive Behavioral Health Services

Phase II is a state-of-the-art facility that supports community-based care for individuals who will benefit from intensive services. The 72,000 square foot building will accommodate one 16-bed evaluation and treatment unit and one 16-bed triage. The building will also house offices for crisis prevention, outreach and engagement teams.

Phase III: Integrated Behavioral & Primary Healthcare

The final phase of the project will include an approximately 100,000 square foot building to house behavioral health services along with a primary healthcare clinic and pharmacy. The facility will also host permanent supportive housing units and space for Compass Health administrative offices. More information to come.
