Mark Your Calendar for the 13th Annual Compass Center Gala!

The Compass Center Gala is the premiere fundraising event of the year for the organization. Join us for the 13th annual event on Friday, March 18th at the Sioux Falls Convention Center!

The 13th Annual Compass Center Gala is an evening event to raise awareness for the mission of The Compass Center and honor the impact and important role it plays in our community. Funds raised at the event will be used towards expanding the reach of impact of The Compass Center by supporting initiatives such as:

EXPANDED TELEHEALTH DELIVERY TO REMOTE COMMUNITIES:
Large portions of South Dakota are classified as “mental health deserts”…expanding on innovations made during the pandemic will allow Compass Center services to reach more rural communities.

PLAY THERAPY PROGRAM EXPANSION:
A new initiative allows for Play Therapy services to be imbedded into a therapeutic daycare/preschool setting, providing intensive services to at-risk children by utilizing their native language – play – to process their experiences in a developmentally appropriate way.

PARENT-CHILD INTERACTION THERAPY:
Family-based therapy that helps mend relationships strained by the aftermath or abuse and trauma.

RAPE CRISIS HOTLINE:
Provides a trained advocate any time a sexual assault is reported at an emergency room or on the crisis hotline. Advocates offer victims emotional support, advocacy, information, and referrals to counseling and other community resources.

With an continued increase in demand for services meeting an unexpected federal funding reduction, your support of The Compass Center’s clients is now more important than ever before.

The 13th Annual Compass Center Gala provides an opportunity to connect and network with business leaders, influential community members and advocates, and staff members of The Compass Center. The evening will feature a sit-down dinner, desserts, interactive games and opportunities to bid on a unique selection of auction items.
