Compass at First Presbyterian is a partnership between Compass Housing Alliance and Seattle First Presbyterian Church with funds provided by a grant from the City of Seattle.
The program serves our community by:
- Providing 100 new shelter beds for individuals age 18 and older
- Offering daytime and evening access to support services
- Serving men and women; pets are welcome
- Ensuring smooth and safe operations through an on-site manager
Our enhanced shelter model removes several barriers for people transitioning off the street by partnering overnight shelter with 24/7 on-site support services and intensive case management. In addition to services, we serve both male and female identifying people, offer room for storage of possessions, and welcome pets. This combination of shelter and services enables us to meet people where they are and build a supportive community to help people currently living in tents or encampments to move toward stability.
