“Nourishing the innate goodness and personal self-esteem of women and their children, providing respite and services in an atmosphere of hospitality with dignity and love.” This neighborhood gathering place helps reduce isolation and loneliness by providing a sense of community to women and children experiencing poverty and its outcomes-physical, mental, emotional and societal. Wellspring offers four core programs: the Nutritious Meal Program, the Children’s Corner Program, the Women’s Wellness Program and the Safety Net Services Program. The goals of these programs are to provide vulnerable women and their children practical assistance combined with compassion and encouragement so they may better navigate life’s challenges. It is our mission to create lives marked by dignity and self-respect, thus building a healthier community for all.
