Compass Cares was established out of a need to help patients and families traveling for medical reasons. We do this EVERY DAY and in EVERY WAY.
Our award-winning philanthropic program, Compass Cares, provides comfortable, fully furnished, and equipped accommodations conveniently located near hospitals and medical centers, raising funds, sponsoring events, and securing in-kind donations for Compass Cares residents. Our hope is that staying in a Compass Cares apartment will alleviate some of the stress patients and families face during such a difficult time.
Our Compass Cares apartment program offers patients and families a quiet place to rest and heal during some of the most stressful and challenging times of their lives. Simple things like in-unit laundry, a hot shower, and a full kitchen offer the comforts of home when it is needed most. Our Participating Partners have amplified our ability to provide comfort, love, and healing through their thoughtful donations and are a testament to the notion that, “Together, we do more good”.

Serving Our Community
Boston Children's Hospital
Each year Boston Children’s hospital sees over 660,000 patient visits from all over the globe. They treat some of the rarest and most complex diseases. Because our desire to make a positive impact in the communities where we work and live is embedded in our culture, we established a multi-year commitment to support Boston Children’s Hospital. In 2021, through our Compass Cares Program, we have donated $92.5K to Our Room to Heal fund which benefits the Hale Family Center for Patients and Families.
Hospitality Homes is a nonprofit organization that provides short-term housing in volunteer host homes for patients receiving medical care. At times, their guests are unable to share housing with host families because of personal medical conditions. The pandemic further complicated their ability to use their traditional host family housing model. Compass Cares was able to serve as a unique resource providing private accommodations so Hospitality Homes never had to turn a patient or family away.
It's All About Partnership
30 Dalton in Boston, MA is one of our property participating partners that generously donates their guest suite to our Apartment Program for patients and families in need. With close proximity to hospitals, the comforts of home like in-unit laundry, a kitchen to cook in, and the ability to help more patients and families and change lives, our property participating partners play an important role in our Compass Cares initiatives.
Lisa Roger is a local artisan who generously donates her time, energy, and materials to create thoughtful therapeutic toys and accessories for children staying with us through our Compass Cares program.
