A Message from our Chief Executive Officer
Our Mission
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 ​

Northwest Compass held the first annual Appreciation Ceremony for the presentation of Social Impact and Humanitarian Awards on Tuesday, September 23 at the Metropolis Ballroom in Arlington Heights. At the ceremony The Bufka Foundation was recognized for the Social Impact Award and Iron Mountain Incorporated was recognized for the Humanitarian Award.

Northwest Compass established the Social Impact Award to recognize an individual or organization who, through their financial gifts and/or volunteer services, has provided us the opportunity to have an impact not only in the local community, but also with communities beyond the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. The Bufka Foundation’s commitment to the community was one of many factors that led to this foundation receiving the award.

Northwest Compass established the Humanitarian Award to recognize an individual or organization who has rendered outstanding services to our clients located in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. Iron Mountain received the award because of its record of sustained commitment through volunteer services and financial support. Collectively, these services and support have made a significant contribution towards our mission to transform crisis into opportunity for those who are vulnerable and at risk.

With the support of The Bufka Foundation and Iron Mountain, Northwest Compass has been able to reach out and help many more residents of the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. These two organizations have provided Northwest Compass with many exciting opportunities that would not have been possible without their support.
Northwest Compass, Inc. Staff was proud to be a part of the Northwest Community CROP Hunger Walk, Sunday, October 19, 2014 at Lutheran Church of Martha and Mary in Mt. Prospect.

CROP Hunger Walks help to support the overall ministry of Church World Service, especially grassroots, hunger-fighting development efforts around the world. In addition, each local CROP Hunger Walk can choose to return up to 25 percent of the funds it raises to hunger-fighting programs in its own community.
CROP Hunger Walks help to provide food and water, as well as resources that empower people to meet their own needs. From seeds and tools, to wells and water systems, to technical training and micro-enterprise loans, the key is people working together to identify their own development priorities, their strengths and their needs – something CWS has learned through some 68 years of working in partnership around the world.

Part of the proceeds will benefit the residents that Northwest Compass, Inc. serves!

Posh Tots: The Upscale Resale donated over a 1,000 baby items to Northwest Compass, Inc.! On behalf of the families we serve with children, THANK YOU!
