Wellspring Living, Inc. will enhance existing transitional housing programs, expand housing vouchers, and strengthen post-program support to facilitate the transition to permanent housing for sex and labor trafficking survivors in Atlanta, Georgia.

By leveraging existing Continuum of Care memberships and broadening collaborative partnerships, Wellspring Living aims to extend their impact and effectively meet victims' varied and complex needs.
