Compass Church owns two homes that operate as transitional housing for local families facing homelessness. In partnership with Love Columbia, these families are enrolled in the Extra Mile program where they are equipped with coaching and skill development for the purpose of eradicating debt and saving resources so they can move into permanent housing.
Many church members are involved as coaches or in the maintenance of the houses which helps share the love of Jesus one relationship at a time. As of 2022, more than twenty families have stayed in the Compass houses.
