120+ Years of Support

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 our name and programs have changed over the past 120+ years, there are elements of our mission that remain constant:

  • We foster innovative ways to meet emerging needs in the community.
  • We support individuals and families experiencing crisis to 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.
