“Veterans Helping Veterans Find the Way Forward" Compass Quest Veterans Advocacy Group is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation that assists veterans, serving military and their families in Southwest Missouri and the surrounding “4-States” region. Compass Quest engages in supportive programs that include veteran peer mentoring, team building activities and VA systems advocacy. Compass Quest provides navigational assistance to veterans in the community to obtain local, regional, and national services. Sustaining services include faith-based mentoring and working with local organizations to partner eligible disabled veterans with trained service dogs.
Our mission is to remove barriers that hinder the pursuit of wellness. Our goal is to instill a sense of worth and belonging for our fellow warriors. During the last 5 years, we have formed many partnerships with other organizations and businesses, so we can effectively support this segment of the community. We have provided direct or referral support to over 2,500 individuals.
The programs and activities listed below aid in developing a renewed sense of Belonging and Usefulness as well as building a new Sense of Purpose. We provide assistance in the form of activities, mentoring and referrals.
