About Us

Our Core Values

To provide an innovative approach to transition from homelessness to permanent independent living.

At Project Kompass, we truly value the uniqueness of each and every resident. Our programming is not one size fits all. We work closely with all of our residents and along with our staff and case managers strive to develop an individualized plan that bridges housing insecurity to sustainable independence.

Together with our Board of Directors, donors and incredibly dedicated volunteers, we intend to maintain our flexibility, personalized care and investment in new programming that benefits the youth and young adults in our community.

Our History

After spending long careers in corporate positions and small businesses, the founders of Project Kompass began looking towards the next chapter and ways to turn their energies and skills towards helping others and paying it forward.

After months of research and meetings with local nonprofit agencies and government officials, we discovered that there was a severe shortage of suitable housing options for homeless young adults. Overnight shelters and traditional group homes did not provide an adequate transition period and tended to house individuals with addiction and/or serious mental health issues. As a result, the young adults we serve tended to couch-surf, sleep in their cars or reside in other unsafe situations.

We decided to change the model and find a safe and nurturing space where residents could stay for a longer period of time while we created a personalized development plan to help them gain the necessary skills, training and financial resources to move towards permanent housing independence.
