Impact statement

Compass Health’s impact comes from more than 108 years of experience providing services to individuals in the communities we serve.  We are a flexible organization that is able to adapt to the ever changing needs of individuals in our community.  When we saw a need to not only provide a home for orphans, forgotten and neglected children but  also to provide for their mental needs, we grew our organization to provide those services.  As time went on it became apparent that many adults needed mental health services so again we grew our organization to serve this population.  Next we recognized that individuals who were homeless and receiving mental health services needed housing in order to assist in and maintain their recovery so we started a housing program.  Today, our key initiatives are the provision of (a) mental health services including case management to more than 11,000 children and adults each year; (b) crisis services; (c) primary care, mental health, chemical dependency, and medication services integration; (d) peer run drop-in center; and (e) housing.

Program 1

Compass Health Supportive Housing Program

Compass Health's Supportive Housing program provides safe, affordable housing located in Island, Skagit, and Snohomish Counties.  We currently own and/or manage 155 units of housing with a total of 233 bedrooms, including three to four bedroom shared homes and individual apartments located throughout the three counties.  The homes and apartments provided are in safe neighborhoods close to mental health services, bus lines, and grocery stores.  Our housing program provides both transitional and permanent supported housing to individual adults, male and female, ages 18 and older that have chronic mental illness.  These individuals have incomes at or below 30% of the county annual median income with many falling below the Federal Poverty Guidelines.  Participants come from all cultural and ethnic backgrounds.  Most of the individuals who enter the program meet the federal definition for homelessness.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"Dear friends,

This year saw us face unprecedented challenges in our efforts to continue to meet our mission to champion the quest for well being throughout our communities. These challenges included the closure of highly valued programs and the reduction of our most valuable asset, our staff here at Compass Health.

Despite these challenges, Compass Health provided high quality services to over 18,500 clients this past year in our communities throughout Skagit, San Juan, Snohomish, and Island counties. This would not have been possible without the exceptional leadership of our Board of Directors, our dedicated and talented staff, and the unwavering support of our community. Together, we will continue to face our challenges and successfully meet them.

Therefore, on behalf of the Compass Health Board of Directors, staff and clients, we thank you for your continued commitment to our mission. Without you, we would not be able to continue to provide much needed services to vulnerable children, families, adults, older adults, and other members of our community.

Sincerely,

Tom Sebastian President and CEO"
