Former COMPASS Youth. Jose moved to Connecticut in eighth grade. He found a family at COMPASS; the staff embraced him, and he developed strong bonds with the other youths in the program.  At 16, Jose got a job at the Hartford Public Library working with young people. “I started to do the same things with the children at the library that COMPASS did with me…I grew at COMPASS.”
