A Message from our Chief Executive Officer
The Mission of Northwest Compass is to enhance our community by providing emergency services, education, and empowerment which foster personal responsibility for those who are vulnerable or in crisis.
"Northwest Compass provides support, direction and resources to individuals and families when they are desperate and have nowhere to turn. We respond by helping people in need sort through their immediate problems and identify solutions through the help of our professional staff and skill based volunteers."
-Ron Jordan, Chief Executive Officer

Thank you to all the volunteers that participated in the 2015 Unshelter Homeless Count in Suburban Cook County!
Over 250 low-income children received gifts this year as a part of the 2014 Northwest Compass Holiday Program! Donors from all over the Northwest Suburbs came together and sponsored the children to receive gifts, they otherwise would not. The gifts the children received were necessities that their parents could not afford, such as, shoes, boots, winter jackets, pants, sweaters, books, and much more. Thank to our donors for their selfless act of kindness: Addison Group, Assurance Insurance, Beat Street, Chase Bank, Chicago Northwest Suburban Alumni Panhellenic, Dunton House Restaurant, Illinois Federation of Teachers, John Hersey High School, Northwest Central Dispatch 911 Service, NSSEO, Old Navy, PepsiCo, Prospect High School, Society of Dermatologic Surgeons, and St. Raymond’s Parish. We also cannot forget to mention the Christian Church of Arlington Heights for allowing Northwest Compass to use their space to distribute the gifts to the families! What a success!
