For more information, please call Wellspring Living at 770-631-8888.

Wellspring Living began in 2001 as a residential program for adult women who have issues ranging from drug addiction to prostitution. More than 100 women have graduated from the Wellspring for Women program which offers intensive counseling, coaching, mentoring, discipleship and prayer at a residential facility in metro Atlanta.

In 2008 Wellspring began a new residential program targeting girls ages 12-17 who became victims of childhood prostitution.

The girls’ program utilizes licensed professional counselors and also helps each participant get their schooling back on track. Participants also receive life skills training covering topics such as conflict resolution, healthy meal preparation and spiritual discipleship.
