Compass - Compassion in Action

Compass Volunteers

Are you a young professional or have a young family who is looking to give back? Compass was created to make philanthropy easy and accessible. We get together once a month and provide short, family-friendly service opportunities through the ministries of Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas, supporting their mission of putting love into action.

We can all give back through the act of compassion. If you have a few hours each month to spare, let us know. A kind heart can go a long way. Email compass@catholiccharitiesks.org to learn more.

Compass not only provides volunteer support to our ministries, but also strives to generate funds. See what events Compass has coming up below!
