housing ... hope ... recovery

We are the clients, families, staff, volunteers and donors. We are those whose lives have been affected by mental illness. We are a source of help and hope to these individuals and to their families by providing safe, affordable housing, practical supports, and clinical expertise. We know that recovery from psychiatric illness does not mean finding a cure; rather, it means developing a satisfying, hopeful and contributing life despite the presence of mental illness.

We are Wellspring.

We Are Wellspring!


e have provided supportive housing, rehabilitation services, and crisis stabilization services in our community for more than 28 years. Since opening in 1982, we have served nearly 6,000 adults whose lives have been affected by mental illness. Through safe, affordable housing, practical supports, and clinical expertise, we have been a source of help and hope to these individuals and to their families. We know that while “cures” are elusive, the recovery of a life from mental illness is not only possible, but to be expected. Wellspring provides the safe-havens and supportive community where recovery can first be imagined, and then made real. Today, a staff of 119, full and part time, provides supportive housing and services to nearly 600 people a year, across nineteen sites. And today, thanks to the efforts of many people, we are larger and stronger than ever before. Our gratitude for that progress extends to people throughout the community: legislators, board members, community partners, state and local funders, donors, family members, consumers and Wellspring’s extraordinary staff. We offer a special thanks to Wellspring’s former Executive Director, Steve Perkins, who retired in October 2009 after twenty-seven years of service to this organization. We remain indebted to his enduring vision and tireless faith in this agency. Wellspring was founded by a small group of community leaders and family members who recognized the importance of having a stable place to live, along with

housing ... hope ... recovery

“Wellspring has been an important part of my life for many years. I can’t imagine a better place to work, contributing to Wellspring’s mission to help folks with mental illness be their whole selves, live fully, and recover with dignity and personal meaning. What an honor and a blessing to be part of all this!” ~ Katie

the support of knowledgeable staff. Phil Ardery, our founding board chair, wrote and filed the articles of incorporation, establishing our agency as the Schizophrenia Foundation, Kentucky, Inc. The first “program” to open, in March 1982, was Wellspring House, now called Ardery House in honor of Phil. Twenty-eight years and eighteen additional sites later, the Schizophrenia Foundation, Kentucky, Inc., has officially become Wellspring, Inc. The decision to make the name change official was both philosophical and practical: • The Wellspring name has become well-known and wellrespected across the community by individuals familiar with mental illness and with mental health services. • The original name inaccurately implied services to persons with only one type of mental illness. • The use of the word “foundation” in the original name suggested that our purpose was to fund other service providers, rather than to be a provider of services ourselves. Another milestone this past year is that, despite the challenging economic climate, we have achieved 95% of our first-ever capital campaign goal of $2.1 million. These funds enabled us to pay off the loans on the David J. Block Crisis Center and complete a number of critical maintenance and renovation projects on existing properties. Capital campaign contributions will help us sustain our housing and other capital assets into the future. Other “works in progress” include: • laying the groundwork to establish the agency’s first headquarters, which we hope to achieve in the spring of 2011; • receiving a $1.3 million HUD grant to develop the Wellspring-Tonini Apartments, a joint project between Wellspring and New Directions Housing; • partnering with Seven Counties Services, Inc., to provide community-based living opportunities to eight individuals with long histories of residing in institutions. While Wellspring continues to grow and change, we remain true to our mission to promote the recovery of persons with mental illness through leadership in the development of quality housing and rehabilitation services. Like everyone, we are worried about the future and how the economic recession will impact us. But we are also excited about our work and hopeful about the many ways that Wellspring can continue to have a positive impact on the lives of the many courageous men and women who enter our doors, as an active choice to further their own recovery.

“Being a part of the Wellspring family allows me to be true to my personal desire to help those often overlooked by society, and enriches my life in many ways. I feel a real sense of pride in the work that Wellspring’s skillful, caring clinical and support professionals accomplish, and I’m glad to be a part of the team.” ~ Patrick Rhodes, Director of Programs

Living Solutions for Mental Health Recovery Housing...hope...recovery: Wellspring’s Guide to Services

Our Mission

To promote the recovery of persons with mental illness through leadership in the development of quality housing and rehabilitation services.

History and Growth

Founded in 1982, Wellspring works to improve the lives of individuals with mental illness in our community. From Ardery House, our flagship site where Wellspring first began providing Transitional Housing, Wellspring moved on to developing Supported Housing and Independent Housing. In 1995, Wellspring opened Kentucky’s first Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) the Frank M. Gaines Center. A second CSU, the David J. Block Center, opened in 2007. In addition to our Jefferson County programs, Wellspring operates one site in Shelby County. Wellspring has been recognized as Kentucky’s pioneer in providing such services; indeed, Wellspring is the only such provider in this seven-county region.


At Wellspring, we believe that recovery from psychiatric illness does not mean a cure; rather, it means developing a satisfying, hopeful and contributing life despite the presence of mental illness. Recovery is a unique process for each person. To most effectively promote recovery from mental illness, the community must respond with an array of options to meet individual clients’ needs and preferences.


All client services are overseen by Wellspring’s Director of Programs, Patrick Rhodes, MSSW, LCSW. Wellspring operates with a staff of over 100 professionals and paraprofessionals, and annually serves nearly 600 clients from Jefferson, Shelby and surrounding counties. Wellspring’s staff is continuously trained in the best practices in the field of mental illness.

Service Fees

Costs for Wellspring’s programs and housing rentals vary according to site. However, all charges are based on a sliding fee scale.

Services and Housing

Wellspring offers a variety of programs that provide a bestpractices approach for our clients’ recovery. These include crisis stabilization services at two locations, two transitional housing programs, three highly supported permanent housing programs, and 90 units of deeply subsidized rental housing, including supported apartments, independent apartments, and single-family homes.

Crisis Stabilization Services

The goal of Crisis Stabilization Unit programming is to assist patients in an acute psychiatric episode achieve stabilization and avoid hospitalization. Wellspring’s 2 CSU sites, the Frank M. Gaines Center and the David J. Block Center, provide a total of 16 crisis stabilization beds. This program serves patients who are experiencing acute symptoms of mental illness, such as severe depression, mania, or symptoms of psychosis. This is the only Wellspring program that does not require a severe and persistent mental illness diagnosis to be eligible for services. While at a CSU, patients receive intensive treatment, close monitoring with high levels of staff support, and medications prescribed by a psychiatrist. Multi-disciplinary Staff includes: • Full-time Psychiatrist • 7 Psychiatric Rehabilitation Counselors • Expressive Therapists • 24-hour staff double coverage • Peer Support staff

The David J. Block Center provides eight crisis stabilization beds. When it opened in 2007, this site doubled Wellspring’s previous capacity. The David J. Block Center, situated in downtown Louisville, serves both men and women. Admissions are accepted seven days a week.

The Gaines Center Crisis Stabilization Unit, which opened in 1995, was Kentucky’s first residential, communitybased crisis unit. Until Wellspring opened the David J. Block Center, it remained as this region’s only such program. In 2005, the Gaines Center CSU received the Mental Health Association of Kentucky’s prestigious Philip P. Ardery Award, honoring ten years of urgent, ongoing psychiatric care and treatment in a community setting. The Gaines Center CSU houses eight men and women, in a homelike setting at the edge of downtown Louisville. Admissions are accepted seven days a week.

Ardery House opened in 1982. As our first site, it was named in honor of Philip P. Ardery Wellspring’s founding board chair. This program assists individuals who are leaving the hospital and/or experiencing homelessness achieve independent living. All participants have a diagnosis of mental illness; nearly half also have a cooccurring substance abuse disorder.

Wellspring opened Journey House in 1998 to address the needs of Louisville’s homeless women with co-occurring mental illness and substance abuse issues who were falling through the cracks of a service system ill-prepared to simultaneously treat these illnesses. Most of these women are also victims of violence, and have experienced multiple failures in treatment and independent living prior to entering. Journey House is the first residential program in Kentucky specifically designed to serve this population; it accommodates 8 women. Staff is extensively trained in both mental illness and substance abuse treatment. The program provides intensive support to the women as they struggle with the issues of recovery from both illnesses.

(502) 637-4361 x10 (502) 637-4490 fax Wellspring provides 90 units of deeply subsidized rental housing for adults with severe and persistent mental illnesses. Our tenants have very limited incomes; many would be homeless or live in substandard housing without this resource. This housing is coupled with appropriate support services from Wellspring and Seven Counties Services, providing tenants a permanent home base for their journey of recovery. Openended leases and a variety of housing types and locations allow participants to choose the best fit for their needs. While most of Wellspring’s housing is spread geographically throughout Jefferson County, the agency also has one fourunit residence located in Shelby County, in the Shelbyville area. Wellspring also provides scattered site, leased apartments, with supportive services, for 15 residents with mental illness who have been identified as chronically homeless.

Wellspring has also been cited as a model program in national reviews of residential service providers. Wellspring operates 3 supported housing programs which enable participants with extensive psychiatric hospitalization histories to live successfully in the community. There is no limit on the length of time a resident may live in these houses. Broadway House, which opened in 1986, is located in the Phoenix Hill neighborhood. It is home to 8 men who live in a congregate environment. Concord Apartments, in the Hikes Point area, opened in 1987; it provides housing for 8 women in four two-bedroom apartments. Crescent House, a single-family home for 3 men, opened in 2003. Staff complement includes: • Master’s level clinical social workers • Consulting psychiatrist • Residential staff coverage (variable, according to clients’ needs) • 24-hour on-call clinical staff

About the Art Art Therapy program is part of Wellspring’s supportive services programming. Expressive Therapists Carol A. Miles, LPCA, LPAT, MEd, Katie McCarthy, MA, ATR-BC, LPAT and Ashlee Grate, MEd provide instruction and encouragement to the program participants. The artwork featured on the cover and throughout this report was created by Wellspring’s program participants.

Carol Miles “I believe that art creates change. It allows us another form of communication when words are not enough and opens up new opportunities for understanding. It is rewarding as an art therapist to guide clients of Wellspring through the process of self-expression, witnessing and honoring who they are in that moment.” Credits Cover Art – created by participants at the David J. Block Center; original image has been altered by designer for this publication Back Cover Art – created by Jo, Wellspring participant Toucan – created by Ann, Geraine and Karen, Wellspring participants Angel – created by Rebecca Mendez
