History: Community Compass, who is affiliated with the Church of Grace and Peace located in Toms River, New Jersey, works in harmony with the church to ensure that the needs of the community are met. Community Compass acts as gauge to respond to social challenges especially as situations that pertain to the homeless, the disadvantaged, families or individuals in crisis, and anyone struggling through life with no support services to assist them through difficult times. Our community development programs are open to the public and no one is excluded from receiving assistance regardless of their religious beliefs, income status, race and/or any other reason.
