Home / Our Mission

The Wellhouse seeks to rescue and provide resources and opportunities for sex trafficking victims. Additionally, The Wellhouse raises awareness of human trafficking through public speaking engagements.

The Purpose

The WellHouse provides a safe residential environment to sexually exploited women, offering spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical support services. The WellHouse welcomes all women who have been sexually exploited through human trafficking. Regardless of race, color, creed, or religion, women in pain can be assured they will find love and acceptance at The WellHouse.

  • A victim is a person who needs to be rescued.
  • A survivor is someone who has been rescued.
  • An overcomer is someone who has been healed.

Origins of Our Name

The name, The WellHouse, is taken from The Bible’s story of the Samaritan woman at the well, because we are a “a place where women never have to thirst again, ” John 4:11-15.

“Sir,” the woman said, “You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us this well and drank from it himself, as did his sons and his flocks and herds?”

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water so I won’t get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.”
