Compass Center for Women and Families
Compass Center for Women and Families helps all people navigate their journey to self-sufficiency, safety, and health. We empower individuals and promote equal access to opportunity regardless of gender or economic status. Our services include career and financial education, domestic violence crisis and prevention programs, assistance with legal resources, and youth health programs.
Founded in 1979, The Women's Center was created to offer help to women in transition. The Women’s Center’s mission was to partner with women and girls to build their knowledge, skills, and confidence to become self-sufficient through financial literacy education, career exploration and preparedness, legal information, adolescent empowerment programs, and connections to community resources.
Family Violence Prevention Center of Orange County (FVPC) opened in 2000 in response to Orange County’s need for a county-specific agency to work with victims of domestic violence, their friends and families. FVPC’s mission was to prevent and end domestic violence through direct services and community education.
Compass Center for Women and Families brings together two strong agencies with successful track records serving women and families in the community. The organization serves around 6,000 individuals from Orange, Durham, Chatham and Wake counties each year.See more
