Over 130 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 130 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.
