The Wellspring has been selected as a 2022 Bezos Day 1 Families Fund award recipient! We’re proud to be among the 40 organizations across the country to be recognized this year by an independent advisory group of homelessness experts for making measurable progress on family homelessness in Northeast Louisiana. We plan to use this generous $1.25 million investment to address the tremendous community need for sheltering families experiencing homelessness as well as the mental health needs of client populations served by the agency. We will also use this as an opportunity to invest in the workforce capacity, infrastructure and resource development essential to sustaining these direct services in Northeast Louisiana. As we continue to help families navigate through an uncertain economy, we’re especially grateful for the Day 1 Families Fund’s support, which will allow us to double down on our work to serve and provide stability for families in our community.
