24/7 Free and Confidential Hotline

Services We Offer

Wellspring provides comprehensive, supportive services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. All of our services are free and confidential.

Domestic violence and sexual assault are complex issues. Wellspring staff are available to help individuals process their experience so they can determine what is right for them.

An individual does not have to be physically injured to receive services from Wellspring. Our goal is not only responding to victimization that has occurred but also to intervening to prevent future victimization.

24/7 Hotline & Live Chat
Wellspring advocates are available to anyone who needs our services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year via our telephone hotline 518-584-8188.

We also offer an internet-based chat hotline which is a way to connect with a Wellspring advocate through the internet (computer, tablet, or smart phone) instead of telephone. Chat is not available 24-hours a day, it is available mostly during business hours. To access Chat, click the “Read More About Chat” button below.
