Wellspring’s Supportive Housing Program combines affordable housing with the support services needed to achieve stability following a period of homelessness, hospitalization, or incarceration. We help clients:
- Access resources needed to obtain and maintain affordable, permanent housing
- Overcome barriers to obtaining housing, such as lack of income or poor rental history
- Set goals to improve clients’ quality of life and to maintain housing
Wellspring’s affordable housing tenants have very limited incomes, and many would be homeless or live in substandard housing without this resource. Affordable housing is coupled with appropriate support services from Wellspring, providing tenants a permanent home base for their journey of recovery. Open-ended leases and various housing options allow consumers to choose the best fit for their needs.
Most of Wellspring’s housing is located throughout Jefferson County, but the agency also has one four-unit residence located in Shelby County.
Wellspring also provides scattered-site, leased apartments, as well as supportive services, for residents with mental illness, many of whom have been identified as chronically homeless.
