Centralia Success Stories
HOUSED And Moving Forward!
My name is Malia and this is my story.
There was a time when I had nowhere to go and had to rely on the mercy of my friends who would offer me a couch to stay on. It is difficult to be my age and have no place to call “HOME” and there is a certain kind of defeat that you feel when faced with that fact.
A job, a house & a changed life
Hi my name is Samantha and this is my story. I was struggling to pay my bills and stay sober. I was working part-time at Papa Murphy’s and in a hopeless situation, which eventually led to me sleeping in my car. I heard about a place called Compass and reached out.
Confidence to work and Keep Herself safe!
I always wanted to work. It didn’t matter what type of work, I just wanted to make enough money to take care of my pets and pay for the maintenance on my car. I also thought it would be good if I could make extra spending money for the Anime conventions that I like to go to.
A Place to call Home
Jacob came to Compass Career Solutions in June needing housing. He had been living in his car for quite some time and being homeless was really taking a toll on him. With a lot of ups and downs Compass was able to utilize the GOSH program and at the end of August, find Jacob his own apartment!
A home and hope for the future
Hello, my name is Tom. Things were not always as they are today.
There were many cold nights that I would sleep in my car or shelter. I was depressed and felt hopeless. I kept to myself and was very isolated with very few supports. When I was depressed and needed someone to talk to nobody was there.
A new Job that is a perfect fit!
