Homelessness Prevention

COMPASS

Our Vision

Since 1982, COMPASS, Congregational Outreach Ministries Program of Assistance & Social Service has been a partnership with over 20 area churches and other groups.

COMPASS provides services to prevent homelessness and stall evictions, allowing families to remain in their homes. Clients are assisted with partial rental assistance or utility assistance. COMPASS also refers clients to other agencies in the community.

Our qualifications process is designed to meet the emergency housing needs of a client . A client can only seek either rent or utility help once a year.  COMPASS does not provide assistance for utility bills in default with the gas or electric company. Be sure to read these qualifications prior to calling or coming to the office for service. Please note there is no guarantee of assistance.

COMPASS also provides Benefit Bank counseling from Franklin County.  That includes: ODJFS Applications, and Food Stamp Registration. Please call Terrie at 614-463-9612 for an appointment.

COMPASS is a site for Neighbor to Neighbor applications for AEP customers only.  To see if you are eligible to apply, click here.
