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.

WellSpring

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. All month long we have been raising awareness about consent, how to support survivors, what sexual violence looks like, and who it affects. Part of our mission at Wellspring is engaging the community to end sexual abuse. At the core of preventing sexual assault is creating a culture of consent. That means children growing up in a culture where asking to touch someone else is the norm. It means a community where asking to kiss someone is not seen as “weak” or “awkward” but as a sign of respect for another’s autonomy. For this to happen, consent needs to be taught to children from an early age.

We recognize that parents may feel unequipped to have these conversations. Therefore, we are offering a workshop for parents of teens to discuss ways to talk about and model consent to children of all ages. Please join us in Fort Ann at the Old Stone House Library on Thursday, April 26th from 6-7 PM.
