Compass Cares Program Raises Money To Support Patients And Families
Compass Furnished Apartments, founders of the award-winning Compass Cares program, announced that their Room to Heal Fund, a multi-year commitment to Boston Children’s Hospital has provided $100k in support of the Hale Family Center for Families.
Compass Cares was born out of a need to help patients and their families traveling for medical reasons EVERY DAY and in EVERY WAY. The program focuses on providing comfortable accommodations convenient to hospitals, raising funds, sponsoring events, and securing in-kind donations.
“We are passionate about keeping patients and their families close by providing them with our own accommodations located near hospitals and raising funds to enhance their in-hospital experiences,” said Eric Fleming, President of Compass Furnished Apartments. “Our hope is that our donation helps alleviate some of the stress that patients and their families are facing during this difficult time.”
The Hale Family Center for Families provides hospitality services like DVDs, books, and games for parents to check out and take to their rooms, communication needs like computers for families to use, wellness offerings like yoga classes, cultural connections through multilingual staff, activities for kids and teens, animal-assisted therapy visits, parking and accommodations support, as well as advocacy and caregiver support programs.
“We are so grateful for this generous support from Compass Furnished Apartments. The Room to Heal Fund has provided comfort to so many patients and families as they navigate the unfamiliar hospital setting while caring for their child. From offering coffee to allow families to take a moment to themselves to hosting parents in an ICU sleep space to rest – these opportunities make a marked difference to families in their time of need,” said Miranda Day, Director of Family and Volunteer Services at Boston Children’s.
This donation marks the largest contribution that Compass Furnished Apartments has made to an individual organization through their Compass Cares program.
