So you have heard the term before, but do you really know what a nonprofit organization is? A corporation or an association that conducts business for the benefit of the general public without shareholders and without a profit motive. A nonprofit is a tax-exempt organization that serves the public interest. In general, the purpose of this type of organization must be charitable, educational, scientific, religious or literary. Compass Point is a nonprofit organization. Compass Point has been providing prevention, intervention and treatment services in the Northern Black Hills of South Dakota under the name of Northern Hills Alcohol and Drug Services since 1973.
