COMPASS Programs

Permanent Supportive Housing

In 2016, David & Margaret in collaboration with A Community of Friends (ACOF), opened a Permanent Supportive Housing program for disabled and/or special needs families.

This housing complex consists of 28 units for disabled and/or special needs individuals and families who need intensive supportive services and are not ready to live on their own without these resources.

These no-cost, on-site supportive services and resources include:

  • Case management
  • Mental health support
  • Life-skills training
  • Vocational training
  • Necessary resources
  • Specialized community events
  • And more

Some residents have their supportive services provided by David & Margaret and others by Tri-City Mental Health-  each tenant is aware of their assigned service provider prior to moving in.


All units and common spaces in the property are managed by EAH Housing which has over 50 years of experience in expanding the range of opportunities for all by developing, managing and promoting quality affordable housing and diverse communities.  As the management company, EAH enforces the lease to maintain a safe environment for all. This is essential as this affords an opportunity for tenants to learn expectations in a real-world setting, while also having access to a supportive learning environment. EAH is experienced working in supportive housing environments and is able to offer a unique and educational environment for the tenants.

Although each play different roles, David & Margaret, ACOF, Tri-City, and EAH, along with other community providers, work collaboratively to ensure stability for individuals most at risk of homelessness due to their mental health barriers. This model, therefore, promotes sustainable stable/permanent housing for those otherwise most at risk of eviction and ultimately, homelessness.


To be eligible for these permanent supportive housing units, young adults must meet the following criteria:  

Be between 18-24 years of age;

  • formerly in foster care;
  • at risk of homelessness or chronically homeless; and for identified units
  • diagnosed with a mental health disability
  • Actively enrolled in mental health services
  • Youth from Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange or Ventura Counties are all eligible to apply for housing here. 

Apartment homes range in size from 700 to 1,000 sq. ft. The Village Common Center provides 1,500 sq. ft. of space for residents to train, study, learn, socialize, and participate in programs of interest. There is also ample gated parking.

This Apartment complex provides the majority of permanent supportive beds in the San Gabriel Valley for young adults.

COMPASS Celebrates Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, COMPASS Point hosted a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion event in the Drop-In Center. The Center was decorated with balloons, streamers, and Haikus, and the participants were offered a selection of Asian-inspired cuisine including orange chicken, white rice, dumplings, and an Asian chopped salad. 

The event started off by streaming a live AAPI panel hosted on Zoom where community members discussed issues facing the AAPI community and how their various organizations contribute to solutions. Following the panel, the first part of a 5-part series called “Asian Americans” produced by PBS was streamed on the living room TV.

After the episode ended, participants discussed what they had learned, one participant went on to compare what they had learned from the video to what they know about the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, sharing how they felt society doesn’t talk about the oppression of the AAPI community as much as the Black community and that they were interested in continuing to learn more. The event continued with fun favorites, Disney Pixar short “Bao,” a showing of “Moana”, and finishing off with the classic “Mulan.” 

The participants in attendance expressed they were happy to have in-person events at the Center again, a few learned about additional resources they did not know were offered at COMPASS! The AAPI Heritage event was a huge success for COMPASS Point and we look forward to hosting more in the future!

COMPASS Programs is now accepting applicants! If you or someone you know could benefit from the services offered through COMPASS Programs, email COMPASS@davidandmargaret.org or talk to your case manager to start the application process!
