Compass Crew

Compass Crew is the community fundraising program that benefits our neighbors in crisis—the homeless, hungry, heroes and unaccompanied young adults in our community.

The program is open to anyone in the community, ranging from schools, businesses, private foundations and neighbors, who are interested in hosting independent fundraisers in support of Northwest Compass (NWC). From bake sales to holiday gatherings and more, any type of fundraising event can make a difference and the Compass Crew team is available to help along the way.

NWC COMMUNITY

The Summer solstice—the first day of Summer and longest day of the year—was a clear, crisp day in Mount Prospect. Many organizations serving the homeless have selected the Summer solstice to commemorate those who have overcome homelessness, and this seemed a fitting day to commemorate the Grand Opening of Northwest Compass's Coordinated Entry Walk-in Center. NWC was joined by Mount Prospect mayor, Arlene Juracek, District Director for Illinois' 56th District Mussman, Christi Wessel and representatives from Mount Prospect, Des Plaines, Journeys, Elk Grove Village Township, St. Mary's Services, Center of Concern and Harper College to mark the occasion. As a lead agency in the North for Coordinated Entry, NWC looks forward to working closely with agency partners to help end homelessness in our community.
