We Are... Home!
For the past 117 years, home for Wellspring Family Services has been a series of rentals, leases long and short, packing and moving, disruption and high cost. A story we shared with so many of the families we work with every day. With the Grand Opening of our new Rotary Support Center for Families on June 26th, Wellspring Family Services has finally come home!
Our Grand Opening marked a significant building block in our vision to end homelessness for families, but we also had lots of fun! With an opening by the Seahawks' Blue Thunder Drum Line, great speeches by emcee Steve Raible and many of the key players in the building vision followed by live music by The Toucans and performances by local drill teams, tours of the new facility, great food and drink, and family fun... a good time was had by all!
This event celebrated a milestone not only for Wellspring Family Services, but for all families in our community. In our new home, many of our services will come together for the first time - enabling us to more effectively achieve our mission to end family homelessness, stop domestic violence in homes, and build emotionally healthy families. With the unwavering support of our community, Wellspring Family Services will continue to change lives every day for generations to come.
Home Is... Here! For Wellspring Family Services and for a center that will change the story from one of hopelessness to hope for all kids and families in our community.
