Mini-Grant #1: COMPASS

St. Compass regularly serves 15 to 20 low-income grade-school children with
homework help, nutritious snacks, and creativity / play activities in the

which draw greater numbers.
2008 - A grant of $2,500 from After School Treats, Inc., was given to enable
Compass Ministries to open on non-school weekdays during school holidays and
other days when schools are not open, 2008-09 school year.
2009 - $250 for activity materials, underwrote a Flag Day flag plaza
dedication ceremony, and provided milk for Fall 2009 snacks for the
2010 - Milk for Spring 2010 snacks.
first After School Treats grant to Compass Ministries has inspired an ongoing
relationship with this outstanding, Christian-based afterschool program near
Franklin Elementary School in North Omaha.
Compass couldn't afford to be open on weekdays when school is not in session,
around holidays and teacher inservice times. For several days a year, these
northeast Omaha kids had nowhere to go on those days.
to this mini-grant, now they have a fun, safe, supervised place to go on those
days, with nutritious food, mini field trips, and purposeful activities to spend
the day productively.
Ministries is located in the former Franklin Credit Union building. It is a
nonprofit, Christian youth-serving organization. It provides tutoring,
mentoring, homework help, Bible study, occasional field trips, and creativity
experiences for inner-city children and youth. On Sundays, there's a
well-attended "kids' church."
effectiveness of the faith-based approach to helping inner-city youth is
outstanding. Would you like to support Compass Ministries? More funding and
