Thank you to everyone who joined us for our 35th Anniversary Celebration on September 22, 2022, and to each person who helped us reach this milestone! Please enjoy our program video which highlights our history and incorporates pictures and videos from the last 35th years.
Wellspring has been a trusted neighborhood gathering place in Oak Park since 1987, when its foundresses Sister Claire and Sister Catherine first envisioned and created a safe place for women and their children to be welcomed with a spirit of hospitality, dignity, and love. A lot has happened in these 35 years! The location has changed, programs and services have been added, people have come and gone, the neighborhood has seen changes, and the children who came to Wellspring with their moms years ago are now coming in with their children. What hasn’t changed is our commitment to remain true to the words of Sr. Claire, “whatever the question, the answer is love.”
