History: Since 2001, Wellspring Living has provided support to survivors and those in danger of experiencing domestic sex trafficking in Atlanta. Their programs teach youth and women ages 12 to 39 years old life skills and how to recover from their experiences.
Did you know: Wellspring Living aims to restore the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of those who enter one of their residential or community programs. The Women’s Academy program offers GED, career readiness and apprenticeship tracks. In 2020, Wellspring Living will open a receiving center where trafficked youth can get safe, coordinated care in one location.
Its motto: “At Wellspring Living, we are committed to transforming lives of those at risk or victimized by sexual exploitation.”
How you can help: During this holiday season, join in the celebrations by giving a gift from a participant’s wish list, wrap gifts, help decorate the residences in festive Christmas lighting or prepare a holiday meal. Another way to give is to donate tickets to an outing or make a financial contribution toward one of their life-affirming programs.
