Responding to an environment of dynamic and constantly changing socioeconomics continues to define and solidify Northwest Compass Inc.’s essential role in assisting people in meeting the challenges of having a safe environment for themselves and their families, from which they can create a path to a positive future.
We enhance our community by providing emergency services, education and empowerment which foster personal responsibility for those who are vulnerable or in crisis.
We will continue to be an effective provider to those in crisis in the Northwest suburbs through the delivery of comprehensive services that help people when they need it the most. This vision will be achieved through a consortium of integrated community partnerships.

Suspending judgment and demonstrating empathy. Open mindedness with our participants is treasured because active listening creates transformation.
