Location: 120 West Madison Street Suite 702 Chicago IL 60602 USA
Results: Compass to Care alleviates the financial burden of childhood cancer-related travel costs so that families can focus on what’s most important: the health of their child. 2010 through 2012 served as the foundational years for Compass to Care. Over the past two years, we have strengthened our organization by: • Establishing strategic partnerships • Diversifying our revenue stream • Improving our cash flow • Enhancing our processes and procedures • Creating an internship program • Aligning a team committed to our future As a result, we are facing tremendous growth. In 2010, our inaugural year, we supported 5 children on 27 journeys. WE WERE ECSTATIC!! In 2011, we grew to support 17 children on 114 trips. This year, we have already supported 40 children on 318 trips to the hospital for treatment. And we keep growing!
Target demographics: Children under the age of 18 who have been diagnosed with cancer, are currently in an active treatment regimen, must travel at least 60 miles to get to the medical center for care and whose families demonstrate a financial need for assistance.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 50
Programs: We have one program, to be a cancer travel navigator for children who have cancer and their families so they can get to the hospital for treatment that can save their lives.
