Supportive Housing

Wellspring operates several supportive housing programs, which enable participants with extensive histories of psychiatric hospitalization to live successfully in the community. 

Journey Program

Fifty percent of individuals with severe mental illness are dually diagnosed with a substance abuse disorder.  As a result, they have increased symptoms of mental illness, more frequent relapses, less treatment follow-through, more homelessness and victimization, more involvement with the courts and jails, and revolving-door hospitalizations. 

Journey addresses the needs of Louisville’s dually diagnosed, homeless women.  Most of these women are also victims of violence. The program provides intensive support for their unique situations. The Journey program includes scattered site apartments.

“Wellspring was a turning point in my life…Wellspring helped me rebuild my life. I was in a dark cloud in my life and Wellspring helped me find a tunnel with a light at the end that allowed me to blossom and again reach for my dreams.” – Lisa (not the pictured client)
