About Compass House

For five decades, Compass House has stood as one of the nation's oldest shelter and service providers for youth, offering shelter, counseling, and so much more. Compass House is the ONLY shelter in Western New York that provides services for youth of all gender identities. From a warm bed and hot meals to caring words, Compass House is here when youth need us, 24-hours a day, and 365 days a year.


Our mission is to provide runaway, homeless and street youth with safe shelter and services, through a voluntary and mutually agreed-upon process, in an environment that supports dignity, respect and self-reliance.


We serve approximately 300 youth at our shelter annually and an additional 300 youth at our Resource Center.
