Compass Health

Company description: “[For open positions, please visit:]

Compass Health’s mission is to champion the quest for well-being throughout our communities, and advance behavioral health in Snohomish, Skagit, Island, San Juan, and Whatcom counties. Compass Health was first established as Parkland Lutheran Children’s Home in 1901, caring for orphaned children in Western Washington. In 1953, we hired our first psychiatrist and began providing mental health care for the children who lived at our home. In 1963, Congress passed the Community Mental Health Act, creating community-based service models and allowing for the deinstitutionalization of the mentally ill. As a result, a variety of organizations were established in the northwest that ultimately became part of Compass Health, ensuring a full array of services for adults, children, and families, in the five counties we serve. In 2014, Compass Health merged with Whatcom Counseling and Psychiatric Clinic, expanding our service area to include Whatcom County. Today we serve over 18,000 people per year in our behavioral health programs.

For more than 110 years, Compass Health has been providing innovative mental health services to children and adults from all walks of life suffering from mental illness. Our programs have grown and changed to reflect the needs of the community, and this flexibility has led to us becoming the largest and one of the most well respected mental health agencies in Western Washington. We provide services to individuals in Island, San Juan, Skagit, and Snohomish Counties. Most individuals who receive our services are on Medicaid, and many are homeless. Clients and/or their families typically have incomes below 50% of area median income, with many below 30%.
