History

Wellspring Family Services has been helping individuals and families experiencing crisis since 1892, just three decades after the City of Seattle was officially formed.

Although we have changed our name and adapted our programs throughout our 120+ years, there are elements of our mission that have and will forever remain constant:

  • We foster innovative ways to meet emerging needs in the community.
  • We support individuals and families experiencing crisis take the next step forward by tapping into their own resilience and strength.
  • We focus on the root causes of problems to give families the permanent solutions they need to build healthy relationships and stable lives.
  • We build effective community partnerships to better address acute and chronic social issues.
