Our advocates are here to listen without judgement and help you begin to address what’s going on in your life. Our services are always free and available 24/7.

Every contact to COMPASS Chat is personal. Some people who reach out to us identify as survivors of abuse or violence, some as concerned friends or family members, some as abusive partners seeking to change themselves. Many people may be unsure of what to expect when you contact us. While every contact is unique, our advocates are guided by the COMPASS core values and will emphasize several key points throughout your conversation:  safety, support, and care.
