The statistics about domestic violence are staggering. According to the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence, nearly one in four women in America – and nearly one in seven men – will experience physical abuse at the hands of an intimate partner. And domestic violence often goes unreported – so much so that experts on the subject still consider an increase in reports to be a positive step. (It doesn’t mean domestic violence is on the rise, they say; it means it’s no longer being swept under the rug.)  Click here to listen the interview and read the entire article.

Compass Center’s Annual Fall Appeal Campaign is Underway

Compass Center’s Annual Fall Appeal Campaign is Underway

“I Got The Job!”  – – Hearing those four words is the best thank you we can get at Compass Center. When we see a client who walks in to the Henderson Street House hopeless and desperate and then within weeks their entire world turns around, it makes all the hard work worthwhile.

It also makes it worthwhile to ask our partners to continue their invaluable support by giving during our annual Fall Appeal . Please read our September newsletter to learn exactly how we helped this mom get that job and thrive after surviving domestic violence.

If you truly want to help make a significant difference in your community, this is a great opportunity to do so. You have the ability to help us share more stories like this one. Thank you and DONATE  today.
