Celebrating 40 Years at Wellspring

Wellspring 1977-2017

Our programs have provided hope and healing to over 4,000 individuals and their families since our founding in 1977 and we could not have done it without your support.

In September of 1977 Wellspring co-founders Richard and Phyllis Beauvais actualized their vision and opened their doors to Wellspring’s very first residents here in Bethlehem, Connecticut. Little did they know that their small program for young adults and adults would blossom into multiple residential programs for adolescent girls and young adult women, an accredited special education school, and outpatient offices serving those who struggle with mental health and learning issues.

Help us Kick Off our Festivities with Give Local

As we celebrate our 40th Year we invite you to help us continue in our work of healing by making a gift during Give Local, a 36 Hour Giving Campaign that will take place between 7 AM on Tuesday, April 25 and 7 PM on Wednesday, April 26. Monies raised during this campaign will be amplified with matching funds provided by the Connecticut Community Foundation and their sponsors. Learn more by visiting www.wellspring.org/givelocal.

Giving Tuesday


The families we work with, and those who have not yet found us, need your help in their struggles with mental illness. Your support for Wellspring on this year’s #GivingTuesday is welcome and appreciated!

Your one-time or monthly gift will help change the the lives of a group of people in need of treatment. You may also make a gift by check, made out to Wellspring, 21 Arch Bridge Road, PO Box 370, Bethlehem, CT 06751. Be sure to indicate that your gift is for Giving Tuesday.
Questions? Contact us at christina.reddington@wellspring.org or 203-266-8027.
Wellspring is excited to participate in #GivingTuesday – a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
Entering its fifth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.


Parenting Group for Families in Greater Waterbury

Wellspring Counseling Services is excited to share the launch of a new parenting group for families in the greater Waterbury area. The Angry and Defiant Child: A Group for Parents Who Have Tried EVERYTHING will take place at Wellspring’s Outpatient Offices on Straits Turnpike in Middlebury this fall.

Join Wellspring therapists Kathy Dowling, LMFT and Pam Hemingway for this family centered approach to parenting children with challenging behaviors. Facilitated video discussion and workbooks along with group support will guide participants in learning to respond rather than react to their children.

This 8-week series will begin on October 13 and take place on Thursday evenings from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM. The cost of the 8-week series is $80 per family (sliding fee scale available). Babysitting subsidies are also available. Space is limited.

To register or learn more, please call 203-758-2296.

This group has been funded, in part, by the Healthy Communities Fund of the Connecticut Community Foundation. Participation in this group is limited to residents of: Beacon Falls, Bethlehem, Bridgewater, Cheshire, Goshen, Litchfield, Middlebury, Morris, Naugatuck, New Milford, Oxford, Prospect, Roxbury, Southbury, Thomaston, Warren, Washington, Waterbury, Watertown, Wolcott, and Woodbury.
