Only through our community’s support can we continue to provide opportunity, empowerment, and a sense of community to children in Springfield who need it most.

What does my donation do?

  • Allows Compass for Kids to remove some barriers to success that kids face.
  • Supports a program where staff and volunteers provide transportation to get the kids to and from the program.
  • Supports our Backpack Feeding Program, which sends shelf-stable food home with the kiddos each weekend when they can’t be at school or at Compass.
  • Supports Club Compass where there is a promise of hugs, support, a listening ear, a delicious family-style dinner, and consistent, positive adult role models.
