“Letters of Love” honors the 100+ year legacy of Compass’s mail program, which currently processes over 122,000 pieces of mail annually for people who don’t have a consistent address.

A mailing address provides stability and the opportunity to apply for benefits, seek employment, access resources, and exercise the right to vote. The mail program is a key to ending the cycle of homelessness.


Last year, the Compass community gathered to celebrate the creativity and resilience of the neighbors that Compass Housing Alliance walks alongside on their journey home. Everyone had a blast! Don’t miss out!
