Wellspring Program
 

Wellspring’s mission is to help men and women over the age of 19 stop the damaging effects of sexual trauma, sexual exploitation, sex trafficking, and prostitution through empowerment and peer support.  The program began in 1988 with a small group of concerned Omaha community members and by 1994 it had evolved into a program of The Salvation Army.  A large number of Wellspring participants refer themselves to the program.  Wellspring staff also receive referrals from the judicial system, court diversion programs, other human service agencies, probation, and parole.  The Wellspring program has significant community impact.  The program has helped reduce social and economic costs in areas such as law enforcement, public health, recidivism, and community image.
