Donation of a new building to the Compass Center for Families has cut the facility's capital campaign from $4 million to $500,000.

That's according to Executive Director Susan Carr, who announced the donation at the Compass Light of Hope breakfast last week.

In an interview later with Sheridan Media, Carr said the building is on Eagle View in Sheridan, next to the University of Wyoming business incubator and is 3,900 square feet in size. The building, which is valued at $700,000, was donated to Compass by Sheridan Media president Kim Love.

In addition to Love's donation, Carr said Compass also received a donation of $50,000 from John and Pam Standish.

In the interview with Sheridan Media, Carr said work still remains to finalize the building for use by Compass. And, she said, the organization still has 18 months to go on its current lease.

She said the $500,000 that Compass is now seeking will be used to remodel and furnish the new building. She said during the breakfast that Compass has outgrown its current location on Sugarview Drive and is bursting at the seams. Compass provides five programs for children, including CASA, which stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates; the family visitation and exchange program; co-parenting mediation program; community parent education; and the parent liaison program.
