Reviews for Urban Compass

I have had the good fortune of watching Urban Compass grow from a simple desire to help a community to a full-functioning program that guides children from Kindergarten through college. DeAnthony and Theresa run a program that provides hope in a place where hope is a scarce commodity. The model they continue to perfect will be an important template for other communities in search of a partnership-based structure that gives kids a chance to set goals and achieve them.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
watching its participants excel in the classroom and grow personally.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
watching it become a part of the community it serves.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
perfect mentors for the participants.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
replicate itself in other communities, creating a pipeline for progress in each neighborhood.
