A Message from our Board
To our Clients, Volunteers, Churches, Donors and Friends:
We miss you all. Things have changed a lot since our 2018 Annual General Meeting held in April 2019. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Compass has had to reorganize our Market operations to ensure the safety of our clients and volunteers. We have had some unique experiences and have made some new friends along the way.
We love nothing more than to share with you the successes of all we have done this past year, discuss where we see The Compass heading and answer any questions you might have.

What Clients & Volunteers Say
Thank you to all the volunteers and staff. You do a wonderful job in helping anyone in our community who truly struggles.
This is an absolutely incredible team!! The service they provide is so necessary, and definitely helps the community run smoother.
My 5 years as a volunteer with the Compass have been some of my happiest. I feel very privileged that in my role here, I have been allowed to get to know so many wonderful people. There are huge rewards too. The sense of fulfillment is amazing and the warmth and gratitude of the clients is priceless.
The kindest group of people you could ever meet volunteer at The Compass.
Most helpful community and outreach centre I had ever experienced.
Staff are amazing! They make you feel like a normal person and not someone who is struggling to get by. The staff make this place!
