The Well Community

The Well Community serves alongside those who struggle with mental illness – offering hope & healing through the power of faith, friendship & best-practice interventions. Founded in 2002, the Well Community (“the Well”) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. What started as a simple, church outreach to a handful of people has grown into a flourishing, holistic ministry among adults recovering from serious mental illness. The Well’s philosophy of care, relational interventions, and holistic rehabilitation combine to make a significant impact upon those we are called to serve.

    • For those we serve, the chance of obtaining and/or retaining safe, decent, and affordable housing is difficult. Therefore, we assist our Community Members in securing appropriate housing. In our supportive housing program, we assist higher functioning individuals in securing private apartments. At Jacob’s House, we run a more structured program, currently housing 10 individuals in a group/community format.  Jacob’s House is located on 8th Street about a mile from the Well’s Community Life Center, housed inside Cliff Temple Baptist Church.
