Breaking the cycle of Sexual and Domestic Violence through
Counseling | Advocacy | Education | Awareness | Outreach
The Compass Center exists to break the cycle of sexual and domestic violence. We do that by providing free counseling to all survivors. Children ages 3-12 receive specialized play therapy while moms receive traditional counseling.
We provide crisis intervention, advocacy, counseling, and prevention education service to those impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. Survivors of sexual and domestic violence receive services at no charge.
We also offer the area's only batterer intervention program, working with batterers to stop the violence.
The Compass Center is committed to breaking the cycle of sexual and domestic violence. We achieve this mission through three programs.
We know that survivors often find getting back to normal is a long term process. We offer help to survivors of sexual and domestic violence through counseling with LPC level therapists, assistance with advocacy, and crisis intervention.
In order to break the cycle of violence, The Compass Center offers the area's only batterer intervention program, called Family Violence Project (FVP). The FVP groups address the controlling behaviors that lead to domestic violence.
Public education and the implementation of prevention-based programs are important to the mission of The Compass Center. Community presentations are available and free of charge to any group in the four county Sioux Falls area.
