About Wellspring (Formerly Domestic Violence Rape Crisis Services)
Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault are Pervasive Problems in Saratoga County
- Domestic Violence is the #1 cause of family homelessness in Saratoga County
- Domestic Violence is the #2 violent crime and the #2 cause of homicide in Saratoga County
Wellspring strives to meet the growing demand for services in our community. At the same time, we aspire to reduce the prevalence of relationship and sexual abuse by putting greater focus on prevention, early intervention, and service accessibility.
In March, 2013 our Board of Directors decided to expand the Agency’s mission and impact on the Saratoga County community.
To END relationship and sexual violence in Saratoga County
At Wellspring, our mission is to support survivors and engage our community to end relationship and sexual abuse. Each year, our crisis intervention and survivor services support more than 1,000 clients—providing safe housing to adults and children either fleeing or homeless because of domestic violence, as well as comprehensive support in the form of counseling, legal advocacy, and case management. While helping victims in need is a major focus of the Agency’s mission, we know that by increasing awareness we can end intimate partner violence. Wellspring staff provides prevention and education programs to school-aged youth, as well as training and education programs for parents, faith based congregations, and professional organizations.
