If you are homeless and need help, you have come to the right place. Providing assistance for housing has been a service provided by Wellspring since its beginning in 1931. Today, The Wellspring provides more assistance for housing the homeless in Northeast Louisiana than any other provider. We serve homeless individuals and families with dependent children.


On any given night in Northeast Louisiana, nearly 300 people are on the streets, sleeping in the backseat of a car, in a park or the woods.
