Guests may participate in personal healing/growth programs, connect with other women, learn about resources in the community or share their gifts with other guests. About 2,700 new and returning guests visited Wellspring last year.
“The continued operation of Wellspring is good news for our guests and for Green Bay,” says Jane Shatswell, Wellspring’s program supervisor.
“Guests often tell me that whenever they visit Wellspring they feel hope, support and compassion. The Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Cross have formed a strong foundation on which Lutheran Social Services can continue this life-giving ministry,” adds Shatswell.
The change in sponsorship was born from a strategic planning process the sisters and the Wellspring Advisory Board underwent. The process indicated that Wellspring’s long-term growth would benefit from staffing, financial and professional commitments best served through a social services agency.
Wellspring is open 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and is located at 413 Dousman St. The center collaborates with the Salvation Army, NEW Community Shelter, St. John’s Homeless Shelter, St. Vincent de Paul and area Neighborhood Resource Centers.
