Ncompass is a wonderful organization. I have been involved with it for over 10 years now, and i have seen the organization change the lives of countless individuals. From children in Haiti to young men in detention centers turning their lives around.
It is truly a non-profit that is hard-working and is committed to its mission.

I have been volunteering with Ncompass for 10 years now I'm preparing to leave on my 5th trip to Haiti with them. I have seen them change the lives not only of the children at an orphanage in Haiti but the youth in my community in Oregon as well!
Their hearts, their service and how they spend donors money is all top notch. And you can be sure that every dollar you donate goes to its intended child or service!

Amazing non-profit started by college students passionate about giving back to others because they saw how much they had compared to many who had so little. It has grown into a flourishing non-profit and has made an impact on so many lives. It continues to be run by passionate and committed young people with hearts for others!

I have volunteered with Ncompass for many years. I was able to Haiti to visit the orphanage in Titanyen, Haiti which was a great experience and showed me the real impact this group has. I always enjoyed the Christmas event they used to put on though I think it was a great move to narrow their focus on serving and empowering youth. It has been awesome to see this organization grow through the years based on the belief that everyone giving a little can make big things happen.

I love being a part of Ncompass! I’m an officer whose role is to organize and manage our child sponsorship. We have the most giving, thoughtful donors who truly care for the 26 kids we have living at the Maranatha House in Titanyen, Haiti. The 2 trips I’ve taken to Haiti have been well-organized, perspective-changing, fun trips! I can’t wait to go back!

An organization that does not forget the relationship building part of the communities they pour into. Ncompass has been the bridge for so many to have a transformational service and/or learning experience. While doing so they have provided a foundation of stability for kids to thrive in Titanyen, Haiti and have continued to innovate by launching Kidstarter, which further works to empower youth.

Keep it up!

NCOMPASS is a nonprofit that exceeds expectations. They are totally devoted to bettering the lives of others and improving communities throughout the world. I've been blessed with an opportunity to partner with them through The Other Side of Basketball and our efforts to impact the youth in our community. We've raised money for water filters in Haiti and have even sent kids to donate their time and resources firsthand. Their ability to expose kids to life-changing experiences sets them apart from the rest. NCOMPASS stays true to their mission and calling to serve those in need without losing sight of their overall vision of developing and empowering tomorrow's youth, today.

C.S. Lewis Academy elementary school in Newberg, Oregon has been supporting Maranatha House orphanage for more than 10 years. When we started, it was under Amber Outreach. We first had a boy named Wilson, then a boy named Johnny. These boys aged out. Now we support a 10 year old little girl named Sherlande. After the earthquake in 2010, the house was destroyed. Amber Outreach took out a loan to rebuild the house but NCompass took over the operation of the orphanage. Because of the influence and outreach of NCompass, the orphanage has seen nothing but progress and improvement. They have sponsored many successful projects. The children are thriving in all areas. NCompass is totally involved in working with the orphanage because they care for the kids. They have a transition program to help the kids have a vocation when they age out.

Ncompass is a great nonprofit striving to impact and develop kids and empowering them to impact others through service. I became involved first as a volunteer, then an officer, and now currently serve as a board member. I can tell you that Ncompass takes stewardship of funds very seriously, and they work to make the most impact with the dollars donated. They have grown consistently by being faithful over the small things and continue to do so.

Giving to Ncompass is an investment in developing kids and helping them to have a heart of service. Great organization!

Ncompass is truly passionate about their mission to develop and empower the youth of today to make an impact in the lives of others. I know several students who have gone on missions trips with Ncompass, it was a game changer for them. They came back with a desire to do more, give more and learn more about the world around them, and ways they can help the less fortunate. I will always support and give to this amazing, life changing organization.

I have had the pleasure to help serve with Ncompass on many projects. The heart of Ncompass is kids and empowering them at a local level and international. I have served the homeless for many years with Ncompass and have watched them transition over the last 10 yrs . I have traveled twice to Haiti and worked at an orphanage on numerous projects. People there are empowered and the the volunteers that get to serve are forever changed. It is an organization that dreams big and truly believes with all their hearts that if everyone gave just a little the world could be changed for the better. Every year Ncompass continues to grow and like minded people from all around are hopping on board with their vision.

NCOMPASS partnered with my daughter to create a donation Birthday party event. They were able to help us plan and educate her guests about the children in Haiti at their orphanage. Katie Mathany was able to FaceTime/Skype the children in Haiti with our guests. It was truly a fabulous experience. I would highly recommend partnering with NCOMPASS for an event. The work they are doing in Haiti is helping so many children. It's amazing to be apart of it.

I have been a supporter of NCompass for about 3 years. What drew me to them were there people. They are young professionals with strong moral values and caring and compassionate hearts. They are servant leaders. These young leaders make it hard not to want to help them.

I have found that most people want to be part of successful organizations. It is hard to not want to be involved with NCompass and the vision they have for the future. And it is fun to watch them flourish, grow, and make such a difference in so many lives.

I went to Haiti with Ncompass the week before spring break of 2016. It was an incredible trip that fueled the love and desire I now have for Haiti. The leader from Ncompass that came with us helped us adjust to the culture very well. Once we got there he brought us to the Maranatha house where we met the kids that Ncompass supports. You can tell how much each of these kids loved our leader from the organization. As we got to know these kids we learned and saw how much Ncompass has loved on them and given them hope by partnering with the Maranatha house. After traveling to Haiti they have made sure to keep me involved with the organization and they continue to fuel the love I have for the kids in the Maranatha house and in the country of Haiti. I am so glad that I have found Ncompass and there vision is one that I support fully. I can'y wait for when I get to go back to Haiti with them.

Our High School of 100 students travel every spring around the world on missions trips. We have traveled the past 3 years with NCompass to Haiti. We have sent approximately 60 students over this time span. Each year our students come home deeply impacted by all the different experiences they have had. NCompass has always been highly organized and our students have been safe and well cared for and prepared. I would high recommend supporting NCompass and the amazing work they are doing in Haiti. We have been able to see first hand how they are empowering the next generation of Haitians to make a difference in the future of their country.

NCompass is an amazing organization that selflessly serves a small community in Haiti. I have known the leadership of the organization for many years and work with them on a daily basis with my own non-profit. They are innovative and look to see how they can make the biggest impact for the children they serve. A highlight of my experience with NCompass was traveling to Haiti in Spring, 2015, with their leadership to help with the orphanage expansion, and development of an internet cafe. We have amazing partners in Haiti who I consider now to be good friends of mine. I look forward to my next trip with them!

I was introduced to Ncompass in 2012, and it has turned out to be one of the best introductions of my life. I preside over a youth basketball organization which attempts to involve its kids in as many positive life experiences as possible. It just so happened that one of those experiences turned out to be traveling to Haiti with Ncompass to serve at an orphanage! Not only did Ncompass welcome our kids with open arms, but they were excellent leaders on the trip - so much so that they inspired the kids to return every year since!

I've been able to witness Ncompass's tremendous work internationally, but also locally in Oregon with their Kidstarter platform. The concept of having kids helping kids is one that I believe everyone can, and should, fully support.

I am the Transitions Coordinator for NCompass and I work directly with helping the older kids at our orphanage find jobs and secondary education. Everyone, including myself, that works for NCompass has a normal full time job and we do this on the side when we have time in our busy lives. We look to support from people like you that are everyday working class that want to make a difference in the lives of children with little opportunity in Haiti. If you're looking for a non-profit that is local, grass roots yet established and very transparent with how we spend our partners money, we would love to have your support!

I have been a part of Ncompass for several years. This is the most compassionate non profit I have seen. The staff the volunteers etc. are amazing.
