NEW YEAR MESSAGE

Each year we pray for God to give us an encouraging Scripture to guide our thoughts. Wellspring Living’s word for the year is MORE.

As we seek to know God more, we believe He will enable Wellspring Living to serve with more excellence, see more women and girls walk toward freedom, and experience more impact on the issue of exploitation.

Would you join me in prayer as I believe God for MORE this year?

Mary Frances Bowley
Executive Director

“I have been to five different programs and this is the first place that has worked through my trauma with me. Wellspring is more than a safe place.”

– Vanessa, Renewed Hope House Participant

MORE THAN A SAFE PLACE

Wellspring Living uses trauma-informed care as the foundation in serving women at the Renewed Hope House. Trauma-informed care is an intervention and approach that focuses on how trauma may affect an individual’s life and their response to behavioral health services, from prevention through treatment.

Through a compassionate approach, women are given the choice in their own treatment and care. Their involvement in the entire treatment process gives women ownership and empowerment in their recoveries. The encouraging environment of the program provides a greater sense of safety – physically, emotionally and mentally. Through therapy and skill-building, we offer women the chance to explore and manage the impact of trauma, while focusing on strengths and building resilience.

MORE THAN A SCHOOL

“I have been to five different programs and this is the first place that has worked through my trauma with me. Wellspring is more than a safe place.”

– Sophia, Wellspring Living For Girls Participant

The Wellspring Living For Girls Program is recognized as a Georgia residential school. Wellspring Living provides a hybrid education experience, which means that girls work at their own individualized pace and learning plan using an online platform with live highly qualified teachers in the room to ensure their success. Fulton County teachers create individualized tutoring sessions and lessons catered directly to their learning needs through a multi- media approach.

Girls come into our program on various grade levels and are usually behind. All the teachers meet the girls right where they are and encourage and direct them through a variety of instructional designs. The girls have the ability to choose a variety of ways to earn the credits needed to get back on track (through life skills classes, as well as traditional education classes). The girls’ personal involvement in their education plan gives them ownership and empowerment in their restoration. Our unique academic strategy is one that is being modeled across the United States.

MORE THAN CAREER TRAINING

“The knowledge and relationships that you build from this program is priceless. ELA has given me confidence and hope. This program has meant more than I could have imagined!”

–Tamara, Empowered Living Academy Participan

MORE THAN $100

By saving the money you might spend on one family dinner outing or a new pair of shoes, your $100 a month would significantly impact the lives of our survivors and their restoration experience. Our “100x100” campaign will strengthen our program support and help us to maximize our efforts. Will you give more girls hope?
