The Domestic Violence Program offers free and confidential services to adults and children in abusive relationships. The Wellspring offers services that help survivors of domestic violence have a life free from emotional, physical, economical and sexual abuse. Services are available for residents staying at our safe shelter and non-residents living in the 12 parish region listed below.

YOU CAN CALL US 24 HOURS A DAY, 7 DAYS A WEEK: 1-888-411-1333

Six things to do if you think someone you know is experiencing domestic violence:

1. Call the police if you see or hear domestic violence.
2. Refer them to The Wellspring.
3. Give time, resources or money. Distribute domestic violence awareness materials at your workplace, school or church is one way you can help. Arrange for someone from our staff to come speak to your church, civic, social and professional groups.
4. If you know someone in an abusive relationship, offer your support and refer him or her to The Wellspring.
5. Avoid behaviors that demean or control others.
6. Build support among your neighbors, so that abusive behavior and language is not tolerated in your neighborhood.
