In Memory of Don McDiarmid

Don McDiarmid, a Compass board member and supporter, died on May 10, 2017. Don worked tirelessly developing opportunities for the Compass and encouraged us not to become complacent. We are saddened by his death. It is our prayer that God will comfort Don’s wife, Gail, and family.

Funeral arrangement information is posted on the Skinner and Middlebrook Funeral Home website.

The Compass 2016 AGM

The Compass AGM was held last week at West Edge Community Church. We thank them for so graciously opening their doors to us for the evening. 

Here is the 2016 Annual Report. There’s a Chair Report by Pat Cullen with an overview of the last year and how “Community” is the first word that comes to mind when he thinks of The Compass. So true! Our mission, vision and goals are included. It’s so important we stay connected to our purpose. There are also graphs to help you understand the scope of what The Compass does and who we help. And finally the Treasurer’s Report and our financial statements. 

Together, we provide help for today and hope for tomorrow.
