Our mission is to remove barriers that hinder the pursuit of wellness. Our task is to provide alternative opportunities so our brothers and sisters can effectively transition, integrate and thrive. Our purpose is the prevention of veteran suicides. Our concept has attracted like-minded individuals to join this endeavor and our Board of Directors is comprised of other passionate veterans. Therefore, Compass Quest adheres to our maxim: “Veterans Helping Veterans Find the Way Forward”
Veterans face unique issues that include reintegration, belonging, usefulness, homelessness, coping difficulties, Post-Traumatic Stress, and higher unemployment or under-employment. We help them overcome the obstacles they face and connect them with services that assist with these issues. The pursuit of wellness is more than an individual endeavor. Social, environmental, economic and other external factors significantly influence the wellness of both individuals and the communities of which they are a part. We are pursuing a Veteran Wellness Model that aids in recovery and adjustment and provides a foundation for physical and psychological wellbeing.
