“I’m not sure there are enough words to express how grateful I am to all of you. Thank you for being so unbelievably amazing and helping me and the kids on our journey to healing. Families in emotional and traumatic crisis are so blessed to have you in their lives. We will really miss you all!”
— CSS Parent
“You helped me so much, like how to control my anger, to let people speak, and most of all love. They say love is a strong word and that you have to mean it, and you showed me how to love my brothers and sisters. Thank you for everything.”

“Because of COMPASS, my family and I are stronger than ever, I’m in a loving and healthy relationship, my mental health is doing great, and I’m happy. You guys helped me see that it’s possible.”
— Former client and Dave W. Manzo Scholarship recipient
“I enjoyed the COMPASS team that was provided to me and my family. My grandchildren came to me with extreme trauma issues, and in 6 short months my grandchildren have improved so much with the guidance of the COMPASS team we had – and we all miss them very much!”
— CSS Grandparent
“We’ve had numerous services for our daughter over the past 10 years, and the COMPASS team was, by far, the BEST services we’ve had!”

Community Services are not prescribed programs in which the child and family need to conform to a particular service structure. Rather, our services are responsive to the individual and the evolving needs of the client and family. As such, we see families as often as requested and/or needed (typically a minimum of 3x per week), when and where it is most convenient and constructive for the client and family.
Through each Community Services program, there are individualized short and long-term outcomes that are worked towards.
- Clients begin to recognize COMPASS as a support system and seek out services independently
- Engage clients and families quickly to ensure accountability from involved agencies including schools, the courts, health centers, and other service providers
- Consistent progress towards goals by clients, families, and involved agencies in order to meet established outcomes.
Clients and families meet the outcomes specified at the onset of services (or modified outcomes based on input from collateral service providers) – such as:
- Stable attendance at school
- Resolution of legal issues
- Stabilization of daily family life issues
- Successful referrals to long-term services
- Positive parent-child relationships and interactions
