An innovative network system
COMPASS is Pennsylvania’s fast and easy way to apply online for health and human services. Organizations such as hospitals, church groups and other community based groups that help Pennsylvania residents apply for health and human services can apply to become a COMPASS Community Partner. By registering as a COMPASS Community Partner, our organization can initiate and track applications through their COMPASS Community Partner Dashboard. Community Partners can also assist clients who are current recipients in submitting documents through the ‘Attach a File for a Recipient’ or ‘Scan Documents for a Recipient’ button located on the sidebar of their Community Partner Dashboard.

Let's Get Excited About Family Support!
Family support is a family-focused approach to human service delivery. It is community based and there are no eligibility requirements for participation. As opposed to identifying and fixing what is wrong, family support focuses on identifying and building upon family strengths.
