How you helpWellspring House thrives from the help of many volunteers. The programs available to our students would not be possible without the help of our dedicated volunteer tutors and mentors.
About usWellspring House was founded in 1981 by seven dear friends who were willing to take the risk to do something radical: create a home where they themselves would live and provide temporary shelter to families, living side-by-side as a community. Wellspring still shelters homeless families. We are also focused on the future, having helped hundreds of families to secure permanent homes, graduated more than a thousand low-income adults from our education and job training programs, and facilitated the development of over 100 units of affordable housing on Cape Ann.
