COMPASS formally merged with The Beacon in April 2019 and its services are now a program of the organization.
These services include:
Transportation services (METRO bus fare)
Access to comprehensive healthcare through a partnership with Harris Health System
Walk up case management/information and referral
Housing Navigation through Coordinated Access referral
COMPASS is open Mondays through Fridays from 9 AM to 2 PM. Walk up case management is only available Mondays through Thursdays and services are available on a first come, first served basis.
Clients should arrive as early as 8 AM to get in line for services. At 8:45 AM, a staff member will come outside and hand out 10 numbers for the Harris Health System application. Staff will also make the list for the case management services.
Most of the services such as a referral to Operation ID, bus fare, haircut vouchers, permission to receive mail, etc. require a visit with a case manager.
In order to apply for eligibility for the Harris Health System, a client must be homeless and have acceptable ID.
