Since 1972, Compass House has made the difference between homelessness and hope in the lives of Western New York youth. Our mission? To provide runaway, homeless and street youth with safe shelter and services, through a voluntary and mutually agreed-upon process, in an environment that supports dignity, respect and self-reliance. In a context where young people live in unsafe homes, on the edge of homelessness and with few options, we consider our mission a vital one. For nearly four decades, Compass House stands as one of the nation’s oldest shelter and service providers for young men and young women, offering shelter, counseling, and so much more. From a warm bed and hot meals to caring words, Compass House is here when you need us, 24-hours a day, and 365 days a year. In 2009 alone, we provided 3,074 days of care to 348 runaway and homeless youth. All of our services are voluntary, confidential and free.
