Wellspring Living exists to create restorative environments for survivors of childhood sexual abuse and exploitation. Our vision is to see survivors step out of their pain and begin to rebuild their lives.
Our mission is to confront the issue of childhood sexual abuse and exploitation through advocacy, education, and treatment programs for girls and women.
Wellspring Living operates four residential homes for women and young girls wanting to escape from sexual abuse and sexual exploitation.Wellspring for Women offers a safe place where motivated women averages ages 20–35 can receive hope and healing from childhood sexual abuse and other destructive behaviors. Wellspring provides a low-cost, residential program for women, consisting of six months in an intensive, therapeutic environment followed by six months of supported transition back into a “normal” routine life.Wellspring for Girls is a residential home, in partnership with other child service organizations, that cares for girls ages 12–17 who are survivors of CSEC (Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children.) Wellspring Living offers a therapeutic and educational residential program for there survivors.
Wellspring Living also owns and operates five upscale resale stores to help support the cost of the organization. The stores are run on volunteers and could use your help! Volunteers work a four-hour shift one or two days a week. This is a fun, easy, and rewarding way to support Wellspring. From accepting and sorting donations to helping customers or running the cash register, anyone can help. Wellspring Treasures accept donations of new or gently used women’s and children’s clothing, toys, furniture, and home décor.
