Compass Community Center

Compass LGBTQ+ Community Centre is a nonprofit that has been primarily (but not exclusively) catering to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer residents
of Palm Beach County since 1988. The organization provides direct services in health and wellness, outreach, education, and advocacy for the LGBTQ+ community through all stages of life. Compass’ social/ support services programs include a fast-growing LGBTQ youth and family services department, HIV and STI testing, prevention and treatment program, an on-site health clinic, a growing cultural competency training program, free mental health therapy to the community, a youth drop-in center and a health services department that provides case management for people affected by HIV/AIDS. Compass is home to more than 58 social, support, and therapeutic groups with approximately 80% of clients and constituents identifying as LGBTQ. Approximately 46% of clients are ethnic minorities. On May 19, Compass was presented with the 2023 Non-Profit of the Year Award.
