COVID-19 Response

Wellspring Center for Prevention continues to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19, especially as it affects the communities we serve.  As an important source of services for those in need, we have every intention of continuing our mission especially in times of uncertainty. We are doing our best to minimize risk to our staff and clients and continue with decision we made when the pandemic started. Those decisions affect how we provide services that ensure your and our staff’s safety. Which is why our staff continues to provide services remotely. And why staff rotates into the office while maintaining work from home. We promise to respond to your emails and phone calls as soon as we can and we appreciate your patience as we adjust to this new normal. Please stay safe and take care of yourself and your loved ones.

However we are still operational. If you need to speak with us, please call us on our main line at 732-254-3344 and leave a message at the tone and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
