Domestic violence and sexual assault are complex issues.  Wellspring staff are available 24-hours a day to help individuals process their experience so they can determine what is right for themselves.  All of our services are free and confidential.

Never hesitate to give us a call 24/7 – 518-584-8188.

An individual does not have to be physically injured to receive services from Wellspring.  Our goal is not only to respond to victimization, but also to intervene to prevent future abuse.

It's Domestic Violence Awareness Month and that means that Stillwater Police Commissioner Ray Cordani, once again coordinated a cell phone collection to assist domestic violence survivors throughout Saratoga County. Now in its 15th year, more than 5,200 cell phones have been collected. Our thanks to the local organizations that partner on this project:
DeCrescente Distributing Company, BSNB, New Country Toyota of Clifton Park, The Express Newspaper, Town of Stillwater, Mechanicville Area Community Services Center, Inc., The Stillwater Area Community Center, and the Stillwater Police Department

Sheriff Mike Zurlo of the Saratoga County Sheriff's Office stated that in morning briefing, "far too often we review the domestic incidents from the previous night." Commissioner Cordani, states, "We've got to change the culture to change the behavior." We are all responsible for that change.

What can one individual do?
Here are some ideas:
Talk with your kids, your friends and coworkers about domestic vioence. Tell them why this is important to you. (check out our website for some videos to start the conversation)

Invite Wellspring to your workplace, community group, or faith organization to talk about our services and what you can do.

Find out how you can bring Wellsprings social change programs Coaching Boys Into Men and Athletes As Leaders to your child's sports team.

Organize a fund drive to support Wellspring's work (dress down Friday anyone?)

Call us at 518.583.0280 for more suggestions.

Wellspring's vision is to to end relationship and sexual abuse in our community; we need your help during Domestic Violence Awareness Month... and all year long!
