Wellspring is a nonprofit organization that encourages individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to invest in themselves and their community. We do this through our God centered environment, a thriving community and our innovative program.

We call the individuals in our program Stars because they are the stars or this story!

Our Story

Wellspring Community is a non-profit organization providing educational, enrichment and business enterprise opportunities to adults with special needs such that they are empowered to live full, productive and satisfying lives in a God-centered and spiritually nourishing environment. We strive to continue to be innovators in the field, having conceived, designed and executed a unique delivery model of services to the adult special needs community. We refer to those we serve as STARS – Specially Talented Adults Raising Standards.

We have begun to fulfill our Mission by (1) offering to our STARS a broad and empowering series of classroom- and community-based learning opportunities and (2) establishing specially modified business enterprises where our STARS are engaged in meaningful, creative and productive business enterprise experiences. At Wellspring Bakery and Wellspring Café, staff and volunteers work alongside our STARS, training them in baking, hosting and serving. Staff and volunteers likewise train our STARS to create beautiful ceramic and woodcrafts in our Wellspring Art Studio and to plant, cultivate and harvest living things in our Wellspring Garden program. Our innovative Programming offers to our STARS classroom- and community-based learning opportunities in Physical Education, Art and Performing Arts, Life and Leadership Skills, and Enrichment Education.

Our Vision - is to dramatically scale our footprint and our offerings so as to empower and spiritually nourish as many STARS as we possibly can, consistent with our program excellence and God-centered and spiritually nourishing culture, without compromising the program or culture of legacy Wellspring.

In the near-term, we plan to launch new satellite locations across the Front Range. We also plan to investigate whether and how we can best serve a broader range of STARS than has historically been the case. Longer term, we may expand our footprint beyond Colorado. Also longer term, we plan to explore offering our innovative programming virtually across the State (for those who cannot travel to our brick & mortar locations), across the nation, and perhaps even across the globe. Always, we will continue to try to innovate our Programming to best serve the needs of our STARS.

Day 1 Wellspring Community "Walk to Empower" Challenge Through a sweet friend that shared through photos the beauty of their own backyard we had an idea! Why not get inspired by Ben's "Wellspring Community Garden Class and Pete's Wellspring Community's Photography Class! And she came out of her room! This has been a challenge for Celeste. She loves her room! She had her shirt on from Last year's Wellspring Commuity's Walk to Empower that happened to be on her Birthday! She embarked on a Beautiful backyard journey taking pictures. Westie is wearing her vest for the first time in over two months. She is Celeste's Cannine Companion for Independence Service Dog. Westie also has been well loved by the STARS, Significantly Talented Adults Raising Standards, aka Wellspring Community Volunteer - just Love me . Celeste has agreed to two backyard walks for Walk to Empower today!
