Compassion, NFP Programs
This program is designed to assist with
meeting emergency and basic needs of
single mothers that are living in shelters
or considered low-income and need assistance.
This program is designed to create an
Individualized Action Plan that would
help them implement life skills, educational
training, financial literacy and job
readiness training into their daily
lives. Outreach is offered on Compassion
Day to homeless men and women living
on the streets. Non-perishable meals,
hygiene and seasonal supplies are distributed
to the homeless living on the streets,
each month. We also provide; when available
new car seas, pampers, bottles and diapers.
Excellence Program: This
program is designed for youth and young
adults ages 14-24. We offer Professional
Development, Life skills training, Workforce
development training, Vocational training
and Continuing Education training and
support. We assist these young adults
with setting, implementing, and reaching
their goals and having a successful
life. Workshops are held both on-site
at our Compassionate Resource Center,
Belleville or off-site by request.
Enrich-Me Program: Offers three (3)
programs exclusively for girls.
is a middle/high school based program.
Girls meet each week for one hour to
discuss and build self-esteem, self-worth,
conflict management, and social skills.
This program also offers positive behavior
reinforcement with a focus on attitude,
decision making, and responsibility.
Participants in this program lack the
positive support system needed to continue
their education and/or avoid falling
victim to the negative environment in
which they live in. We provide mentoring
and a positive support system to ensure
each girl continues their education
and continue down the road of success.
Summer Program: is a nine
(9) week summer camp for girls ages
13-16. Participants are also struggling
with social issues (making and maintain
friends), new to the school which they
attend, currently living in a single
parent home, living in a foster care
setting, recently experienced a change
in family dynamics such as; (divorce,
death of a love one). Girls growing
up in impoverished communities face
myriad pitfalls; however; the Imagine-Me
program aims to help steer these young
girl who are struggling with self-esteem
and character issues prior to returning
back to school.
*Girlz On Purpose
Tour: is a 1-day tour for
girls ages 11 to 18 to navigate self-esteem,
education, and character discussions
in a fun, energizing, and inspiring
day. The first tour was launched in
2014. Girlz On Purpose has welcomed
girls throughout St. Clair County, Madison
County and St. Louis communities.
NOTE: Compassion Day was
our first program started in 2005. This
program was placed in the heart of our
founder Rachel R. Jackson. She often
shares that Project Compassion, NFP
was founded as a way to show God's love
and compassion to those who may have
lost hope due to their circumstances
of not having a shelter or enough food.
Through Compassion Day monthly outreach
many lives have been touched, it is
the core and the foundation of who we
we are willing to share with others
and give back to those who are less
fortunate we have not obtained the true
meaning of love, kindness and Compassion.
Our motto "Homeless but still human"
