It's a piece of cake.

Our Mission

Compeer develops, delivers and supports model programs that inspire and engage communities through the power of volunteer friends and mentors of our Compeer affiliate programs to improve the quality of life for adults, children, and families who strive for good mental health.

Compeer provides supportive leadership to its community-based Compeer programs throughout the United States, Australia, and Canada.

The objectives of Compeer are to support our affiliate programs through program expertise, branding, and marketing communication and to grow our current base of programs, by providing a cost-effective solution to communities.

Compeer serves and supports our affiliate programs with program start-up training and best practice management, timely news and regional and national conferences, and web-conference educational series.

Through our time-tested model and evidence based practices of supportive friendship and mentoring, Compeer creates programs to meet the diverse needs of communities that want to improve and positively impact the lives of individuals and families living with mental health challenges.

Compeer’s community based programs serve adults, veterans and their families, youth (youth in-transition, mentoring children of prisoners, youth at risk) and the elderly with volunteer mentoring and supportive friendship programs. Our programs are measured annually and our outcomes are consistently proven effective year after year through positive survey results on individual’s improved self-esteem, and reintegration into family, home, faith and community and increased likelihood of employment; overall quality of life.

Our Vision

Compeer envisions a day when all communities embrace individuals and their families living with mental health challenges; when prevention begins early with children and their families; when living, learning, working and volunteering in the community is given expression through the social inclusion of all individuals and supported by the power of friendship and hope.
