What is Compass?

The Compass Program seeks to engage and assist first responders in developing self-care, training, and mental health resources for overcoming burnout that impacts personal, professional, and community wellbeing.

The City of Huntington is committed to making our First Responder Wellness Center and it’s programming a reality. In addition to the allocated Bloomberg Grant funds, the City of Huntington has committed the first $250,000, and we have our first community donor- AT&T.

We ask that you join us in supporting Huntington’s finest– our police officers and fire fighters who protect and serve every day. To raise the additional $331,000, we are asking for contributions from businesses, individuals and community partners. Please join the Compass program in our fundraising efforts by contacting:
