How We Started & How We Help
Compassions Foundation began in 2009 under the leadership of Immanuel Baptist Church. There were several programs initiated at this time including supervised visitation and Angel Food ministries. The domestic violence shelter is the only program that currently remains, however, it is no longer under the leadership of Immanuel Baptist Church.
We currently have 13 board members who act as a deciding factor for the program's services. Compassion's is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our primary funds come from VOCA (Victims of Crime Act) grant. We also receive grants from Domestic Peace and corporations. There are currently five full time advocates, one part time advocate, a shelter manager, an executive director, four interns, and a volunteer that work with the Compassion's Foundation and are passionate about finding ways to help survivors of domestic violence.
Compassion's Foundation, Inc. focuses on supporting victims immediately following a crisis or traumatic experience and assisting them into independent living away from their abusers. As a non-profit organization, we are committed to providing the highest quality services. Our main goal is to change lives by bringing relief to those who have been through a traumatic experience by providing services without any judgement. Everyone involved with the services of Compassion's Foundation, Inc. is empathetic, highly trained, and qualified in providing victims of abuse and trauma with the help they need to move ahead. Please contact us with any questions, feedback, or if you are interested in working with us.
