MALTA — Wellspring has moved to a brand-new location with better accommodations for the services they provide to our community. 

This October, Wellspring moved to 2816 Route 9 in Malta. The new building was specifically designed and built for Wellspring and its mission. 

“We have been working on this for 10 years,” said Maggie Fronk, Wellspring’s Executive Director. “We outgrew our other building. This one is more visible, and has more room for programs and services to invite the community in.” 

Coincidentally, the ribbon cutting and launch of the new space that happened this month coincides with Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Wellspring is the domestic violence and sexual assault services resources in Saratoga and Warren Counties. Some of the services they provide include counseling, case management, creative programs for coping with or transcending crisis, and much more. Wellspring’s Project Hope and Power teaches skills for financial independence. They also provide educational and collaborative programs to increase awareness in the community. 

Wellspring’s staff of 20 helps approximately 1,000 survivors a year through their in-person services and takes approximately 1,700 phone calls a year. But Fronk stresses that you don’t have to be in crisis to seek their services – all are completely free, confidential, and non-judgmental. 

“You don’t need to be in crisis to reach out,” said Fronk “It does not have to be you who is personally affected, but maybe someone in your life who you care about. We are available for anyone who needs help navigating a situation.” 

Fronk also added that the community can help Wellspring by learning more about how to assist someone in need; as mentioned previously you can invite Wellspring staff to come to talk to your school, team, workplace, organization, etc. They also take donations in the form of gift cards to help with basic needs, such as groceries and gas.
