2020 was tough! We were all tested in ways we never thought possible and beyond what we thought we could handle.
We hope that all of us appreciated what really mattered, and realized what was really important. The #NorthwestCompass team is very proud of everything we did to stay open, to stay safe, to stay afloat and most of all to help so many of our neighbors in need! We never quit and have provided food, housing, and hope to more people than we ever thought possible. YOU ALL have supported our efforts this year to such a remarkable degree! Now more than ever, #NorthwestCompass wants to give thanks to our amazing staff and board, awesome interns and volunteers, remarkably generous donors and supporters, everyone in our kindhearted community, and to all who had us in their thoughts and prayers. We are grateful and honored! THANK YOU! We wish you a Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy, and prosperous New Year filled with limitless opportunities! We will succeed together!
