I heard about the adopt a family for Christmas through my daughter Carrie who works there. Every year I look forward to seeing who my new family is and head right out the door to shop. The lists are great, so complete and helpful. Everyone involved has been very sweet in answering all my questions. The new method of delivery is a lot better. All on one day at one place and having help from people to get all the gifts from your car to the building. I've been involved with the program ever since Erica started it. Each year I look forward to buying for the little ones especially. It is the highlight of the Christmas season.

The Great!

I have been involved with Compass on a number of levels over the past twenty years. I originally worked alongside them advocating for homeless families and youth in San Francisco when I worked at another agency. When I began a non-profit consulting business, I helped them on a grant to secure federal funding for Clara House, their transitional housing facility for homeless families. I've adopted families during their holiday season and most recently I've been involved volunteering to secure donated furniture deliver it to the homes of newly housed families.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Watching Compass assume a leadership role (if not THE leadership role) in helping families to end the cycle of homelessness. They are doing everything they can to help these families in crisis!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

incredibly dedicated and knowledgeable about the difficulties faced by the families they serve.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help partner with a non-profit developer to fund additional housing and provide support services to get more families off the streets or out of their cars. It could also provide more daycare for the families trying to find or hold on to jobs

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

until this past year, my experience with compass has primarily been that of a contributor.....however, with a group of "compass" supporters, we found a way to continue the help that compass provides...after compass doing the "hard" work of finding appropriate housing for families that are homeless, we have decided to furnish houses for those most needy.....this is done through donations of gently used household items and/or financial contributions. we hope our efforts support the incredible ongoing efforts of compass to make life more comfortable to those families in need.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

meeting and furnishing homes for the families that compass has found housing for...the adults and children in these families have been sooo helpful and appreciative of the work that the compass volunteers do.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

making life easier for those that truly need the help.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated and truly committed to their work.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

find housing for every parent with a child and be sure that both the parent and the child had the support structure to better their lives through their own hard work!

Ways to make it better...

we could help more people in need!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

finding appropriate housing for the number of homeless families in our area.

One thing I'd also say is that...

nothing makes one happier than watching a family, either the parents or children, feel comfortable in their newly found home!

I have only had positive experiences at the Tenderloin Childcare Center. I have visited to volunteer and to shadow the Administrative Coordinator Diana Johnson. Everyone on staff was warm and professional. The day care and class rooms were filled with nothing but smiling faces, and happy (if not rambunctious) children. The center provides a much needed service to our most vulnerable residences in one of the most disadvantaged neighborhoods in San Francisco.
