Education, Things to Do in New Haven, Compass Cares

 

Compass did something big for Closer to Free this year. We've created a collaborative art piece that will decorate the halls of our New Haven #ARTlab building. This installation will act as an art therapy piece for our housed patients and be a reminder of how we can do more when we work together.

WHY IS THIS GOING IN ARTLAB?

Working in the Hospitality industry, we understand patients and their families may need to travel for medical treatment. We've created Compass Cares in order to house those traveling patients in comfortable, accommodating, and home-like apartments at deeply discounted rates.

Many patients live within our ARTlab buildings due to close proximity to hospitals and its therapeutic surroundings. We've transformed each hallway and apartment into its own personal art gallery with artwork created by local artists. Our creative environment provides a sense of therapy and calm for patients during some of their hardest times. 

Each piece of artwork has been created by local artists. This brings a strong sense of community and loving support into each apartment. We believe in helping to serve the communities in which we are a part of. Our ability to combine community, art therapy, and patient care is the exact reason we decided to create this beautiful communal art piece.  

Our ARTlab buildings are unlike any of our other apartments.

We've created these "What is ARTlab & How'd We Come Up With It" graphics to showcase our story.
