The Compass Project – Synergy Initiative Round 3

The Health Foundation provided close to $1 million to fund The Compass Project to prevent youth and young adult homelessness. A network of providers in Worcester who serve youth and young people at risk of homelessness was created and continues to this day.

Under the CMS Section 1115 waiver that was approved for Massachusetts in November 2016, case management services will continue to be provided for MassHealth recipients, which means additional support for many of these young people from July 1, 2017-June 30, 2022.
