Wellspring Family Services, a division of Crittenton Services, is cutting the ribbon on a new outpatient and home-based counseling office in Huntington, thanks to a grant provided by philosophy’s Hope & Grace Initiative.
Huntington Mayor Steve Williams will cut the ribbon at 11:00 a.m. with an open house to follow.
The Cabell County office, located on 1596 Washington Blvd. in Huntington, will bring much-needed outpatient and home-based services to the southwestern part of West Virginia, adding three service counties to 18 other counties where Wellspring has an established presence. The Huntington office will serve 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 Family Services has been helping children, families and individuals with professional counseling services for more than 30 years. 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 Harrisville, Huntington and Parkersburg. Last year, more than 1400 clients chose Wellspring Family Services as a mental health provider.
“We are excited to become an important part of the Huntington area and surrounding communities. We know the need is there and we look forward to helping many children and families through our trauma-focused clinicians,” said Beverly Petrelli, Chief Operating Officer.
