VoIP Supply Celebrated MLK Day Of Service At Compass House
AMHERST, NY – In celebration of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. VoIP Supply, North America’s leading Voice over Internet Protocol solutions provider mobilized employees for a MLK Day of Service at Compass House.
Every year in the Western New York region hundreds of youth find themselves homeless due to abuse, neglect, family conflicts, and other issues. Thankfully many of these youth find their way to Compass House, a not-for-profit agency that provides safe shelter and other services to runaway and homeless youth in Western New York. Through Compass House, the youth are provided with access to emergency shelter, food, clothing, needed emergency services, and necessary support to return to a safe living arrangement.
Paula Griffo VoIP Supply President and CFO shared that the company’s mission is similarly aligned to the mission of Dr. King. “We believe that VoIP Supply’s legacy will be to transform communities and businesses through service. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. set an example through service that we are proud to follow.”
Since 1972 Compass House has provided safe shelter and services to homeless and runaway youth in Erie County. The Emergency Shelter maintains 24-hour a day access to safe shelter services for up to 13 youths, ages 12 through 17. In addition to the Emergency Shelter, Compass House also offers at its Resource Center a non- residential program for youths ages 14 through 24 with case management services, counseling, and positive social and recreational activities. Services at both the Emergency Shelter and Resource Center are confidential, voluntary, and free.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'” VoIP Supply answers that question with ongoing outreach activities in the communities that they serve throughout the year. As part of those efforts, the company was proud to have been able to provide service to Compass House on the King Holiday.
