Wellsprings Village, Inc. was founded in 1988 by two Dominican Sisters, Sr. Rita Owens, O.P. and Sr. Justin Farinella, O.P. Having studied local services available to homeless and abused women, they found the need for a long term environment that was conducive for the women to make positive lifestyle changes. Wellsprings Village, Inc. became the answer to that need and continues its mission to help women experiencing homelessness become self-sustaining.
For more than 30 years, Wellsprings Village has offered homeless women a chance to earn their independence, self-respect, and economic freedom. Our residential program provides an affirming environment that fosters hope and encouragement and focuses on the following: education & employment, personal growth & development, and locating permanent housing.
