"Hope & Grace" Initiative Supports Crittenton Services

Wellspring Family Services, a division of Crittenton Services, is opening two new trauma treatment centers in the state, thanks to a grant provided by philosophy's Hope & Grace Initiative. Philosophy is a well-being beauty brand that inspires women to look, live, and feel their best. Each year the corporation dedicates 1% of its profits to supporting community-based mental health services. 

The Hope & Grace grant will fund the opening of a new Wellspring office in Ritchie County, as well as one in Huntington. The Ritchie County office will tie together service areas in north central West Virginia, where Wellspring has an established presence, with its Morgantown office. The Huntington office will expand operations to service Cabell, Wayne, and Putnam counties. New service site selection was based on needs assessments and recommendations from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources.

Wellspring offices serve as hubs, from which trauma-focused therapists visit clients at home, in schools, and in other community settings. Because Wellspring clients are predominantly children and adolescents, the entire family is part of the therapeutic process, making home-based care a convenient and effective approach to care delivery. Wellspring currently has offices in Weirton, Wheeling, New Martinsville, Morgantown, and Parkersburg. Last year, more than 1400 clients chose Wellspring Family Services as a mental health provider.

"We are honored to be the recipients of the Hope & Grace Fund. Hope & Grace, like Crittenton, has a special commitment to the mental healthcare needs of women. Our agency was originally founded specifically to meet the needs of women and young children and while our services have expanded over more than a century of service, Crittenton is committed to gender-responsive care," say Kathy Szafran, President & CEO.

Hope & Grace funds community-base programs that support mental health programs. Recipients are local organizations working to empower women through the promotion of mental health and well-being. For more information, visit hopeandgracecommunity.com.
