Success Stories

  • “The exposure, experience and wealth of knowledge in DVRC were evident, they efficiently and effectively helped me gain perspective, strength, and clarity on my path. I recognized the turning point – they helped me discover how to navigate this new path”
  • "I cant believe how lucky I've been.  Who would have thought that I would find a place as nice as this to come to that would allow me to bring my dogs?  I didn't think anyone would do that." 
  • "Wellspring (DVRC) has helped Saratoga County for decades, providing essential services to our community."
  • "Hope and power was my first introduction to Wellspring (DVRC). I left my abused in the 90's and I felt sad in the beginning knowing I could've come here sooner. But now, I feel more empowered as a woman. I have a real sad story but I don't have to be sad anymore." 
  • "Every debt from my marriage fell on my shoulders, and I went bankrupt years ago. But now, thanks to Hope and Power, I bought my first car - a cherry red convertible. Hope and power gave me the knowledge to check my credit and the confidence to call about a car loan. It's all thanks to Hope and Power."
  • "I never though I could be in a DV situation, but never say never. Now, I've won the Soroptimist scholarship and I can go to school for nursing."
  • "As a result of this class, I plan to go back to school. I want to better my life and my children's."
  • "I feel so much stronger and connected. People in my outside life say I look better. I feel less powerless and know that I have more choices now."
