An Enduring New Compass

Did you know that 1 in 8 people have at least one chronic condition which profoundly limits their ability to function in their everyday lives? Over 90 percent of these illnesses are invisible to those around them meaning you might have no idea the people you live, work and interact with daily are suffering.  While these illnesses can be very debilitating, with the proper tools and support, the people who have them can dramatically improve their capacity to live at their best.

An Enduring New Compass is a non-profit organization that will match this challenged group with life/health/wellness coaches and provide other badly needed resources.  We will be actively working with coaches and clients to make sure those who are chronically ill are able to get the help they need, free of charge or at a reduced rate?  Subsidizing their care costs is exceedingly important in that people who suffer from chronic illness also tend to suffer from chronic money issues which limits the help they can get.  Please join us in our fight to help this often-forgotten group of people find a way to see a positive, active, future for themselves.
