The Reverend Otto and Mrs. Alva Karlstrom founded the Compass Center in 1920 to serve as a beacon of hope for those who are in need. Rooted in the Lutheran tradition of giving through service, Compass Housing Alliance welcomes congregations of all faiths to join us in our mission to create a safe, caring community.
Here are a few of the many ways that congregations of all faiths can support our mission:
- Make a financial contribution on behalf of your congregation
- Prepare and serve a meal at one of our programs
- Host a donation drive for basic needs items, including socks, linens, towels, hygiene items and other essential items
- Consider becoming a Road to Housing host site by providing a safe place for people who are homeless and living in their cars
