Compass Center and its Community Partners have planned a number of exciting events in October in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM). Please mark your calendars and plan to come out for fun, food, songs, spoken word, and more. All donations from our events will be used to help provide our domestic violence and self-sufficiency services to the thousands of women, men and children we serve and empower each year.
