Mission Team

Get involved with COMPACT first hand by bringing a mission team from your church or organization to our campus.

Mission Teams are one of our biggest assets to advance COMPACT’s care, ministry, facilities and outreach. Mission Teams are welcome throughout the year, but most come during summer or other school breaks. Mission Teams do a variety of things from maintenance projects/cleaning/painting, putting together activities for kids and helping with events we have on campus. Teams also bring a variety of people: pastors, painters, carpenters, photographers, teachers, and so many more. Know that whoever you bring on your team will be an asset to us!

If you are interested in providing project funds, supplying resources or would like to bring your team to help complete a project, please contact our office. We can help you to reserve your spot or provide more information.

Host Families

On occasion, families will choose to take a child or children out on a host visit. These visits can be built around your family’s desires.

Hosting can include various activities such as:

  • Taking a resident for a day of fun
  • Taking a resident out to eat for a birthday or special occasion
  • Having the resident for the weekend
  • Taking the resident to do activities they may not have the chance to do with their cottage
  • Providing support and guidance to the resident as they grow

Host Families are people like you in the community who wrap around our residents and provide extra support that they may desperately need.

These are experiences and memories that children cherish forever.

Our ministry could not run if it were not for our amazing volunteers. We have volunteers in every aspect of our ministry: maintenance, tutoring residents and office duties. Whatever your skill-set, if you are interested in volunteering, please contact us.

Our biggest need is office assistants. These volunteers work at the front desk, answering phones and being a helpful guide to those coming to COMPACT. All necessary training is provided. Sometimes these office assistants will help with stuffing envelopes for mail outs or help with cleaning.
