Multi-Year Fund Commitment Announced with Boston Children’s Hospital
Boston – Compass Furnished Apartments, leading provider of short-term and long-term, fully furnished apartments throughout the Northeastern United States, announced today the official launch of their Compass Cares program, established to help patients and their families every day and in every way by providing affordable and available housing near area hospitals 365 days a year.
“We are passionate about keeping patients and their families close and providing them with the comforts of home.” said Eric Fleming, President Compass Furnished Apartments. “This program has been 5 years in the making, and to see it take form over the years has been inspiring. Our hope is that staying in a Compass Cares apartment will alleviate some of the stress that patients and their families are facing during this difficult time, and we are excited to be able to offer this program to those who most need it.”
Compass Cares apartments will be made available to Boston Children’s Hospital for $100 per night, 365 days a year to families that qualify through the hospital’s department of social work. The apartments include all the comforts of home with fully equipped kitchens, premium furnishings, and high amenity features such as in unit laundry, fitness centers, and 24-hour concierges. Compass Cares apartments are special as they offer booking flexibility, waived security deposit, and 24-hour support from the Compass Crew. Compass is committed to provide deeply discounted rates to non-partnered hospitals through this initiative.
“We feel a sense of duty to use our time to help each other and our community and make the difficult things simple, every day and in every way. Our commitment to support Boston Children’s Hospital is the first step, and we are excited to continue to grow this program in our other territories and beyond,” said Amber Moore, Director of Philanthropy at Compass Furnished Apartments.
As part of the Compass Cares initiative, Compass Furnished Apartments announces a multi-year commitment with Boston Children’s Hospital to raise funds for its patient-family service program. Compass has pledged to raise $100,000 over 3 years through the “Room to Heal” fund which will support the hospital’s Patient Family Housing Program and Family Services.
“We are honored that Compass Cares is making this philanthropic commitment to supporting our patients and their families here at Boston Children’s Hospital. Our family services department is so grateful for this support, as are the families that our Hale Family Center for Families helps. Patient-family housing is a wonderful service that we’re able to provide. This gift will help us expand those support efforts.” said Miranda Day, Director of Family and Volunteer Services, Boston Children’s Hospital.
Additionally, Compass will continue to secure in-kind donations from local like-minded companies. With these donations Compass is able to provide extra services to Compass Cares residents like groceries, family activities, ride sharing credits and more.
