Exciting news! Since we can’t collect change in baby bottles as we have for many years, The Compass Church is making a $20,000 donation to Caring Network. Caring Network is the largest Pregnancy Center in Northern Illinois with 6 Centers in the DuPage area. They provide FREE & CONFIDENTIAL pregnancy counseling, ultrasounds, pregnancy tests, referrals, material goods, and post abortion support (RESTORE). Caring Network depends not only on the donations of local churches and families, but also has a variety of volunteer opportunities for anyone that wants to get involved.
We recognize that between 25-40% of women in churches have had abortions. Likewise, 4 in 10 women who have had abortions were attending church at the time.

Restore provides free post-abortion care for women, men and teens in group or individual settings.
