Help Us Break the Cycle of Homelessness

If you’ve taken time to read the information on this site, you have a clear understanding of the dire need there is to help intervene early in these teens lives to ensure they are cared for and learn the life skills they need to have a future.

Daybreak is supported by limited grants, so we must raise money and support to keep our doors open. We depend strongly on corporate and personal donations to help break the cycle of homelessness in our community.


Support our youth. Your gift will help the Daybreak Youth Crisis Center provide:

Shelter, food, and clothing

Transportation to and from school during their stay

Tutors to ensure school work doesn’t add to their stress

Services to strengthen and stablize family relations

Please make your check payable to COMPASS Family & Community Services.

Donating Used Clothing and Used Household Goods

Thanks to a partnership between Goodwill Industries and COMPASS Family & Community Services, residents of Sojourner House Domestic Violence Program and Daybreak Youth Crisis Center can use vouchers to shop for FREE clothing and household goods at any local Goodwill store.

Allowing COMPASS program residents to shop at Goodwill gives them the freedom to choose clothing that fits well, suits their style preferences, and boosts their confidence.

Donating gently used clothing and household items to Goodwill also results in meaningful work for the stores’ employees, many of whom have disabilities. COMPASS does not have the space nor the resources to manage these donations at our facilities.

The donation of NEW paper products, toiletries, bedding, towels, and other items from our wishlists are always welcome because they are used immediately and do not require long-term storage.
