Description

Wellspring Women’s Center is hosting the third annual Taste of Hope event, Thursday, April 27, 2017 at the Center at Twenty-three Hundred, 2300 Sierra Blvd. This year’s event will coincide with our 30th Anniversary serving the Oak Park neighborhood as a drop-in center for women and children. With your continued support, Wellspring is able to provide critical services to an average of 200 guests each weekday. This neighborhood gathering place helps reduce isolation and loneliness by honoring our mission to provide hospitality with dignity and love. We do this by creating a sense of community for women and children experiencing poverty and its outcomes.

 

Wellspring operates four core programs: the Nutritious Meal Program, the Children’s Corner Program, the Women’s Wellness Program, and the Safety Net Services Program. The goals of these programs are to provide vulnerable women and children practical assistance combined with compassion and encouragement so they may better navigate life’s challenges.

The event will feature an evening of great food, dynamic entertainment including a live auction put on by David Sobon & Associates, local wine and beer, and over 250 local supporters like yourself.
