Northwest Compass, Inc

Northwest Compass is a 501 (C) 3 nonprofit organization that has provided programs to the moderate- and low-income populations in the northwest suburbs of Chicago in Cook County for more than 30 years. Its mission has been to enhance the community by providing emergency services, education, and empowerment which foster personal responsibility for those that are vulnerable or in crisis. The programs strive to positively impact the lives of our clients and are in three major categories -- Stabilization, Empowerment and Housing. We have Transitional Living and Permanent Supportive program units and house about 35 clients at this time. We deliver food to 27 previously homeless veterans housed now at Hines. We started delivering food to vulnerable seniors in the NW suburbs. And we see clients facing food insecurity daily offering them food pantry. Only last month we provided food to over 300 clients. We have a 3 homeless clients who we placed in a motel and recently we have influx of new clients requesting assistance due to the fact that the shelter in our area is not accepting new clients .
