  • Highlights of the Year 2013 was a banner year! We are delighted to report that last year our accomplishments included the addition of two new scattered-site supportive housing programs and the development of two new affordable housing sites! These projects provide safe, affordable, and attractive housing to an additional 50 people. For all that we achieved, we give thanks to our donors, who make it all possible, and to the strong governance provided by our Board of Directors, the commitment of our talented staff, the dedication of our many, many volunteers, and to all those whose gifts of time, talent, and treasure allow us to help individuals recover from mental illness and live as independently and successfully as possible in the community.

    The Wellspring Tonini Apartments, dedicated in June, received two historic preservation awards. The complex offers 12 attractive, affordable apartments for adults with psychiatric illness, most of whom have experienced homelessness.

    The Guardianship Independence Pilot Project

    is moving people with mental illnesses out of personal care

    homes and into their own apartments. Our project is

    one of only six such programs across the state.

    LASH, a new collaborative grant, provides housing and intensive case management for homeless adults. Out of 48 total people supported by the grant, Wellspring serves 18 adults with mental illness using a housing first approach.

    We formed the Consumer Advisory Council to serve in an advisory capacity to the Management Team and the Program Committee of the Board of Directors.
