Compass Now 2012 is an assessment of needs in the five county Great Rivers Region. The Compass Now 2012 Report presents the results of data collected through:

  • a community survey
  • community focus groups
  • an extensive review of socio-economic indicators
  • an inventory of community resources.

The purpose of Compass Now is to assess the needs in our communities; identify community resources to address the most-urgent needs; and encourage action plans to solve community problems.

The Compass Now report has been a resource in the Great Rivers Region since the first needs assessment was conducted in 1995. The United Way launched the effort out of a strategic planning decision to transition from a distributor of resources to a solver of community problems.

The Compass Now 2012 partnership is made up of the Great Rivers United Way; Gundersen Lutheran; Tri-County Memorial; Mayo Clinic Health System; St. Joseph's Health Services-Gundersen Lutheran; Tomah Memorial Hospital; Vernon Memorial Healthcare; La Crosse Community Foundation; Trempealeau County and four additional county health departments.

The attached report summary highlights the key findings of the Compass Now 2012 assessment.
