About Us

A compassionate city is an uncomfortable city! A city that is uncomfortable when anyone is homeless or hungry. Uncomfortable if every child isn’t loved or given rich opportunities to grow and thrive. Uncomfortable when as a community we don’t treat our neighbors as we would wish to be treated.

~ Karen Armstrong


We are just getting organized, exploring how Amelia Island can participate in the international Compassionate Community effort. If you are interested in joining us, please contact Jane HolzKamp at at her email. Anyone and everyone who commits to compassion is welcome.



A community in which we treat each other with kindness and dignity.



  • To bring compassion to life through practical, intentional actions.
  • For our island to become thoughtfully and actively compassionate with all the members of the community.
  • To nurture the growth of compassion which calls us to treat all as we would wish to be treated.
  • Compassion impels us to work tirelessly to alleviate the suffering of our fellow creatures. It is the bridge between internal practice and external change.
