Vancouver Success Stories


Working with compass helped me find a job I love

When I first started this new adventure with Compass, I was very nervous and not sure about the process. I didn’t even know what jobs I was interested in. Compass helped me prepare for future employment by improving my interview and job preparedness skills.


Gaining Work Experience

Amber is excited to work toward her employment goals with the help of her Employment Consultant, Erica. However, without formal work experience, she wanted a way to build up her experience and gain a competitive edge when applying for jobs. To help her achieve that goal, Erica connected Amber to a volunteer position with Vancouver Farmers' Market.


Justin loves his first job!

Justin came to Compass excited to find his first job.  For several months he worked with his Employment Specialist, Angela, to get him ready for his new job. They worked on preparing for the interview and how to talk to employers. Then they went out into the community to practice the skills that Justin had learned. 


A home, a job and Hope for the future!

Tara-Ann and her fiancé had been homeless for three years. She became homeless because of a shooting at her apartment complex. Unfortunately she couldn’t work because her health was very poor, and she didn’t have any support to help her find resources to get back on her feet.
