Who We Are.
Compassion United has been serving the poor, homeless, youth, addicted and afflicted of Montgomery County since 2006. Through outreach, relief and empowerment initiatives, we have seen hundreds of people come out of homelessness and find a new and abundant life.

Most people can make a long list of their weaknesses, but have no idea what their strengths are. In order to help them understand that they do have strengths, we use a valuable tool called Strengthfinders.
Research finds people who know and use their strengths every day are more likely to experience positive emotions (energetic, well-rested, happy, respected) and less likely to experience negative ones (stress, worry, anger, sadness).
Achieving these benefits and more starts with the 177-question online Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment. In less than 30 minutes, people who take the assessment receive:
- A measure of their natural talents within 34 themes.
- A life-changing lens for self-awareness.
- A language to more accurately describe what they do best.
- Action items and in-depth information to use as they set out to accomplish their goals.
After two weeks of being in our transition program, residents take the Strengthsfinder assessment. This tool helps them to realize that they have value and helps us to provide individualized guidance and support according to their strengths.
We have had an influx of new residents and all need to take the assessment so that we can begin formulating an individualized success plan for them. The cost of the assessment is $18 per person. Would you consider helping with this expense? We order them by the case, but can buy them individually as well.

Mattresses For Freedom House
Freedom House has offered hope for men who are ready to make a change in their life for over seven years. The mattress that we have are the same ones that we bought when we first opened our doors. Needless to say, it is past time that they be replaced. The cost of replacement is a $100 each and we have 12 beds.
