Community Involvement

At Compass, we strongly believe that besides being ethical businesspeople, it is very important for us to be good and kind citizens. We are big proponents of  giving back to our community.

Deepa Balepur, co-founder of Compass Real Estate, LLC, is a first generation immigrant story, a story of humble beginnings.  She moved to the United States in the early nineties from India, started her family, pursued her career and business and today, Lancaster County is home.  She thanks the Lancaster community at large for creating such a warm and supportive environment.  To her, the real joy of celebrating one’s culture and heritage is to share it with others. Under her leadership, the Indian Organization of Lancaster County was formed and continues to flourish.

In addition, she values her involvement with the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce and Industry (current board member and member of the Diversity Advisory Group), Rotary Club of Lancaster, United Way (committee member), Millersville University, Ware Center – Advisory Council, American Cancer Society (volunteer leadership council).

Her success mantra – “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
