Review for NCOMPASS, Beaverton, OR, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

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!

Review for NCOMPASS, Beaverton, OR, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Ncompass has energetic leadership with inspiring vision to continue their growing impact in Haiti and their more recent venture 'Kidstarter'. A strength of the organization is leveraging the talent of volunteers. An upcoming opportunity will be to scale and measure their impact that has seen steady growth the past 10 years.

Review for NCOMPASS, Beaverton, OR, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Ncompass began as a grass roots organization that evolved from serving the homeless in downtown Portland to providing the primary financial and strategic advice for an orphanage in Titanyen Haiti supporting over 40 kids. I was able to serve with Ncompass during this time and saw the ups and downs of an organization making this rather large strategic pivot. While they could use more help in how to effectively serve the orphans once they age out I can tell you they are powered by a passionate group of individuals who adapt well to change and are chipping away at this learning curve. They are excited to engage with donors and do an excellent job of practicing subsidiarity by allowing the voice of those they serve in Haiti influence operational and strategic decisions regularly.

I recommend reaching out to Katie Matheny if you are curious on details as well as looking into the diversity of programs they use to support youth and considering going on a trip to Haiti to see the enormous positive impact taking place not only at the orphanage, but within the entire surrounding community.
