For us, business is more than profitability and growth. Instead, we believe business should be a force of change. Our Compass Cares program is woven into everything we do and is part of the fabric of who we are. Through our Compass Cares program, we’re committed to improving company culture, focusing on sustainability, and supporting our community.
At the heart of Compass Cares are the patients and families traveling for medical purposes. Our private and convenient living spaces provide them with the comforts of home so they can focus on healing. From creating relationships with our like-minded partners to raising funds through our clients’ purchase of housekeeping & parking services, our Compass Cares program allows us to go the extra mile and provide support for those in need.
Research shows that hospitalized patients, especially children, heal faster and cope better when family members are nearby. Our Compass Cares apartment program offers patients and families a quiet place to rest and heal during some of the most stressful and challenging times of their lives. Simple things like in-unit laundry, a hot shower, and a full kitchen offer the comforts of home when it is needed most. Our Participating Partners have amplified our ability to provide comfort, love, and healing through their thoughtful donations and are a testament to the notion that, “Together, we do more good”.
Serving Our Community
Boston Children’s Hospital
Boston Children’s Hospital patients come from all 50 states and nearly 100 countries for care they can’t get anywhere else. They provide expert care for kids with the rarest diseases and complex conditions. Because our desire to make a positive impact in the communities where we work and live is embedded in our culture, we established a multi-year commitment to support kids and families at Boston Children’s. In 2022, through our Compass Cares Program, we have completed our multi-year commitment and donated a total of $100K to The Room to Heal fund which benefited the Hale Family Center for Patients and Families.
Hospitality Homes is a nonprofit organization that provides short-term housing in volunteer host homes for patients receiving medical care. At times, their guests are unable to share housing with host families because of personal medical conditions. The pandemic further complicated their ability to use their traditional host family housing model. Compass Cares was able to serve as a unique resource providing private accommodations so Hospitality Homes never had to turn a patient or family away.
Do It Like Dan
We sponsored the 1st Annual Choose Your Own Adventure Day to raise funds and awareness for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Do It Like Dan is a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness of ALS, the research and development of therapies, and supporting the individuals and families affected by the disease. This event raised $150K for the Jones family and the Do It Like Dan Foundation.
We purposefully choose like-minded supplies for our complimentary welcome gifts to further improve our environmental impact and support causes we’re passionate about.
