Annual Report 2007–2008


Mission

Wellspring promotes the recovery of persons with severe and persistent mental illness through leadership in the development of quality housing and rehabilitative services. Annually Wellspring serves over 600 clients who have a variety of psychiatric illnesses. The organization operates 18 facilities, including 2 Crisis Stabilization Units, 2 Transitional Housing programs, 3 Supported Housing programs, and 80 units of deeply subsidized rental housing.

In the 2007-2008 Year. . .

The David J. Block Center completed its first full year of operation. This newly constructed residential facility, Wellspring’s second such center, provides a best-practices level of psychiatric crisis stabilization services to nearly 300 individuals annually, in a safe, attractive and homelike environment. The Wellspring Bridge Apartment project progressed as planned for the September ’08 opening. Located in a historic Louisville neighborhood, this energy efficient, low maintenance complex will provide attractive, affordable homes for eight adults with psychiatric disabilities. Wellspring Peer Counselor, Charlie Merrill, became the first-ever recipient of the Champion of Life in Recovery Award from Seven County Services. Charlie embodies the criteria for the award: an individual who possesses an enthusiasm for recovery, exemplifies the positive spirit of recovery, takes initiative and is proactive in their own recovery, encourages others in recovery and advocates for self and others. Charlie richly deserves this recognition for all that he has given to so many – consumers, professionals, and the myriad other members of our community whose lives he has enriched. The Housing…Hope…Recovery: Campaign for Wellspring was launched; it will raise $2.1 million to support both basic and visionary goals aimed at fulfilling Wellspring’s mission. Dedicated Steering Committee members raised over $500,000 before beginning the “Quiet Phase” of the campaign in late 2007. The James Graham Brown Foundation provided a $250,000 challenge grant to inspire donors, and Brown-Forman provided a $50,000 grant as a corporate leadership gift.

A Message from Wellspring’s Staff

oncerns over cuts to mental health funding by Kentucky’s 2008 legislature permeated much of Wellspring’s work over the past year as we endeavored to fulfill our mission. These latest funding cuts are especially hurtful since, apart from a few exceptions, state funding for community mental health services has not been increased in 13 years. This is a chilling show of indifference to the thousands in our community who have a severe and persistent psychiatric illness, and poses a very difficult challenge to all mental health service providers. It is particularly frustrating to see Wellspring’s program support reduced when it is widely recognized that our services save money at other institutions that serve this population, from the emergency rooms, to the hospitals, to the criminal justice system. Research on supported housing for this population consistently shows its efficacy in promoting the recovery of clients, while reducing client use of expensive public institutions. Instead of cutting back due to budgetary issues, the kinds of supportive housing that Wellspring provides should be a focus for mental health funding increases. So, in the context of these frustrating conditions, what have we done, and what can we do? We can Recognize Wellspring’s Effective Services: Let us celebrate the dramatic benefits to the 233 clients served in the first year of the David Block Center for psychiatric crisis stabilization, which opened in July 2007. Of those served, 95% were able to avoid more costly psychiatric hospitalization while achieving stabilization. More impressively, this same high percentage holds true across Wellspring’s two crisis stabilization units, with 95% of the 467 total clients served returned to their homes without the need of hospitalization. Wellspring’s three highly supported housing sites, Broadway House, Concord Apartments, and Crescent House, had a combined occupancy rate of 99.5%; the 20 clients they served all had extensive histories of psychiatric hospitalization. Only one of these clients was re-hospitalized (briefly) this year. All clients were, and continue to be, active and contributing members of the broader community. We also proudly note that Wellspring’s transitional residential programs, Ardery House and Journey House, were consistently full, and that all of their program graduates achieved the housing goal of their choice. We Continued to Build with our Partners: We appreciate the involvement of all of our funding partners in the construction of the Wellspring Bridge Apartments. This project, which began in March 2008, will provide eight new high quality and energy efficient units of permanent housing for adults with mental illness. The project’s funding partners include the U.S. Dept of HUD, the Louisville Metro Department of Housing, the Kentucky Housing Corporation, and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati. Each of these entities has previously helped Wellspring develop projects, and have now generously invested in the Wellspring Bridge Apartments project. We also count on their partnership for developing future quality permanent housing projects.

We are Planning for the Future: We give thanks for the strong governance and support provided by Wellspring’s Board of Directors. The Board courageously implemented the initial phase of a strategic plan that will dramatically increase Wellspring’s scale of operations, and greatly aid in fulfilling our mission.

We Need to Share our Stories: We increasingly recognize the need to promote and support opportunities for personal storytelling by those who have biochemical disorders of the brain. These stories need to be heard by the legislature, the media and by our fellow citizens. Mental illnesses are the last to emerge from the fear and stigma of the Middle Ages into the modern age of effective medical treatment, rehabilitation and equal disability rights. We can no longer allow our neighbors, friends and families to be shut out of the mainstream of care and treatment. Let’s all help erase the stigma of mental illness by non-judgmentally listening as others tell their stories. Wellspring’s mission of promoting recovery in the lives of those with mental illness is a calling in which we can all participate. We can all recognize what works, we can all affirm and support our partners who invest in the recovery movement, and we can join together to identify and move forward on the necessary next steps. Like any other social movement in America, the liberation of psychiatrically disabled persons from stigma and inadequate treatment into recovery and community integration will occur only after we, as a people, decide that doing so is simply an extension of basic American fairness to all. Help us keep building the social fabric of fairness until it embraces those who live with severe and persistent mental illness; we’ll all be the better for it.

ately, one can’t help reading about the challenging economic times we all face. With the failure of the state legislature to provide sufficient funding to keep mental health programming even at a budget neutral level, and with reductions from many other funding sources, it would be easy to focus on the obstacles ahead. Instead, the Wellspring Board and staff have responded creatively, actively and passionately. Our programs have been re-examined to assure that even if the level of care must be reduced, the quality of care is not compromised. We are adopting new approaches to facilities management and going “green” in every way possible. We have stepped up our activities to showcase the full range of services we offer, to prove how investing in Wellspring makes sense, not only for the benefit of those with mental illness and their families, but for the community as a whole. In July 2007, Wellspring celebrated the opening of the David J. Block Center, our newly constructed and second psychiatric crisis stabilization unit. The addition of this program enables Wellspring to significantly expand the available adult psychiatric crisis beds in our community. I write this letter shortly after the dedication of the new Wellspring Bridge Apartments near historic Old Louisville in September 2008. The culmination of a team effort over several years among Wellspring, Bridgehaven, federal, state and local housing agencies, our architect, builder and other community sponsors, the Wellspring Bridge Apartments offer eight new units of attractive, affordable housing for adults with psychiatric disabilities. Not only were the apartments designed to visually enhance the neighborhood streetscape, they incorporate a variety of “green” features for energy efficient operation. At the same ceremony, we were pleased to publicly announce a capital campaign to support Wellspring’s mission. Our specific campaign goals are described in this report. We kicked off the “Quiet Phase” of the campaign in fiscal 2008 having already raised more than $500,000 from our steering committee. At the recent dedication, we announced that over $1.5M has been raised to promote the recovery of persons with severe mental illness by providing affordable housing and rehabilitative services.

ellspring’s first ever public capital campaign seeks to fulfill Wellspring’s mission through growth and consolidation. The capital campaign was an outcome of Wellspring’s 2006 Strategic Plan; it is the key to building upon the agency’s 24 years of achievement and positioning Wellspring to aggressively address our clients’ needs in the future. Five critical goals were identified, including the need to: 1. Develop a second Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) facility to address the community’s unmet need for psychiatric stabilization services in a safe, attractive and home-like setting. To meet this need, Wellspring developed the David J. Block Center, which was completed in July 2007. Projected cost: $700,000 2. Renovate and refurbish Wellspring’s existing 17 facilities to assure the safe, attractive and home-like environment that best promotes the recovery of our clients. Inasmuch as Wellspring’s first facility was secured in 1982, a number of our facilities have unfunded renovation and refurbishment that must be addressed. A time-phased, prioritized list of these needs was developed to guide us throughout the process. Projected Cost: $400,000 3. Create a Housing Development Seed Fund to support the development of 60 units of safe, decent and affordable housing for adults with mental illness. This fund will allow Wellspring to compete for funding that would not otherwise come to this community. For less than $7,000 per new unit, the Housing Development Seed Fund will allow Wellspring to double our permanent housing stock. Projected Cost: $400,000 4. Fund a Facilities Preservation Endowment to ensure the conservation of Wellspring’s housing sites, ensure that Wellspring’s facilities continue to meet the needs of our clients, and that Wellspring’s presence in our community enhances the neighborhoods in which we are located. Projected Cost: $200,000 5. E  stablish a functional Wellspring Administrative Center to achieve organizational effectiveness and efficiency. This Center will enhance ongoing operations, meet staff development and training needs, and allow Wellspring to better support the needs of our clients and their families. Projected Cost: $400,000

Over the past year, the Wellspring Board of Directors worked determinedly to meet the campaign’s goals. Campaign consultants were engaged to guide us through the process. A Campaign Steering Committee was formed, comprised of all Wellspring board members and key community volunteers. Together, this committed group contributed over $500,000 toward the campaign, before launching the “quiet phase” of the project in November, 2007. The early response to this campaign has been enthusiastic. Donors have given confidently, knowing that the agency is an accountable, local, community-based organization meeting a crying human need in an efficient and progressive fashion. The James Graham Brown Foundation awarded Wellspring a grant which will match campaign gifts dollar-for-dollar up to $250,000! And, Brown-Forman provided a corporate community leadership gift of $50,000. The culmination of the Housing... Hope... Recovery: Campaign for Wellspring efforts over the past year will be evidenced by the time this report is distributed. The Campaign went “public” in September 2008, in conjunction with the dedication of the Wellspring Bridge Apartments. Located in a

historic Louisville area, this new site offers eight units of attractive, affordable housing for adults with psychiatric disabilities. This energy efficient building’s design features enhance the streetscape, and carefully selected exterior materials ensure compatibility with existing homes in the neighborhood. We have already raised over $1.5 million toward our $2.1 million goal, but we know that completing the campaign will present many challenges. But Wellspring’s proven model of providing quality community-based supportive housing offers compelling evidence for increasing our programming, and through it, to save lives, support families, and improve our community. To those ends, Wellspring is committed to completing this most important undertaking, and to celebrate its success by the conclusion of 2009.

Ways to Give to Wellspring

A broad range of giving options allows donors to achieve their personal financial goals and support the important work of Wellspring. Gifts of any size are appreciated – every gift makes a difference! Annual Fund Campaign A year-round fundraising effort, this campaign helps sustain Wellspring’s programs and facilities by covering costs not met by grants and contracts. Endowments Endowment gifts help assure the stability of Wellspring’s future. The income from endowment investments can help support special program needs and cover extraordinary facility expenses, while the base of the gift continues to grow. Gifts Of Appreciated Assets By donating appreciated assets rather than cash, donors can receive the same tax deduction, but avoid capital gains and transfer fees. Stocks, bonds, real estate, and other such assets make excellent gifts to Wellspring, especially if they have increased in value since acquired. The current market value may be used as a tax deduction without incurring capital gains. Life Insurance Policies Significant tax savings can be realized by naming Wellspring as owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy. The value of the policy and annual premium payments may be tax deductible. Planned Giving Donors can make revocable or irrevocable planned gifts to Wellspring and receive immediate recognition of their gifts. Options to consider include: • Naming Wellspring as a beneficiary in your will. • Designating Wellspring as a beneficiary of a trust. • E stablishing a Charitable Trust with Wellspring as a beneficiary. • Identifying Wellspring as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy. Matching Gifts Many employers offer a matching gifts program that extends the value of their employees’ generosity. Check to see if your employer will help you help Wellspring in this way!

Guide to Services Wellspring’s Mission

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

History and Growth

Since our founding in 1982, Wellspring has worked to improve the lives of individuals with mental illness in our community. From Ardery House, our flagship site where Wellspring began providing Transitional Housing, Wellspring moved on to develop Supported Housing and Independent Housing. In 1995, Wellspring opened Kentucky’s first Crisis Stabilization Unit, the Gaines Center, and a second CSU, the David J. Block Center in 2007. These diverse sites offer a variety of supported housing options designed to provide a best-practices approach for the recovery of our clients. In addition to our services in Jefferson County, Wellspring has expanded into Shelby County by establishing a site in Shelbyville. As a result of these unflagging efforts, Wellspring has been recognized as Kentucky’s lead provider of such services, and we are the only such provider in this region.

Service Fees

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

Philosophy

All of Wellspring’s work is based on the belief that when individuals with mental illness have the stability and dignity of housing, the work of psychiatric rehabilitation and recovery can begin. 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. 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.

Staffing

All client services are overseen by Wellspring’s Associate Director & Director of Programs, Katherine R. Dobbins, MSSW, LCSW. Wellspring operates with a staff of nearly 100 professionals and paraprofessionals, who serve over 600 clients in Jefferson and Shelby counties annually.

Services Array

The agency operates two crisis stabilization units, two transitional housing programs, three highly supported permanent housing programs, and 80 units of deeply subsidized rental housing, including supported apartments, independent apartments, and singlefamily homes.

Program Development

Wellspring is a multi-faceted agency. In addition to providing program and housing services, Wellspring performs all phases of housing development, including: planning, site location, arranging financing, and construction contracting. We take great pride in developing safe, attractive and affordable housing that supports our residents’ recovery and improves our neighborhoods. Wellspring’s staff is continuously trained in the recognized best-practice methods in the field of mental illness. Training staff to work with clients who have cooccurring mental illness and substance use disorders is particularly emphasized, since a large percentage of our clients are diagnosed with both illnesses.

Crisis Stabilization Services

The goal of our Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) programming is to assist patients experiencing an acute phase of their mental illness to achieve psychiatric stabilization and avoid hospitalization. Wellspring’s 2 CSU program sites, the Gaines Center CSU 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 the 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 Wellspring has developed a centralized referral and admission process for the CSU Program. Referrals for both sites can be made by calling (502) 561-1072.

Wellspring operates 3 supported housing programs, which enable participants with extensive histories of psychiatric hospitalization 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 and provides housing for 8 women in four twobedroom apartments. Crescent House is the latest addition to Wellspring’s supported housing program; this single-family home for three men recently celebrated its fifth anniversary. 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

Fifty percent of individuals with severe mental illness are dually diagnosed with a substance abuse disorder. As a result, they have increased symptoms of mental illness, more frequent relapses, less treatment follow-through, more homelessness and victimization, more involvement with the courts and jails, and revolving-door hospitalizations. Wellspring opened Journey House in 1998 to better meet the needs of Louisville’s dually diagnosed, homeless women, who were falling through the cracks of a service system ill-prepared to simultaneously treat these illnesses. Most of these women have also been victims of violence, and have experienced multiple failures in treatment and independent living prior to coming to Journey House. Journey House is the first residential program in Kentucky specifically designed to serve this population;

Independent Housing Wellspring provides 80 units of deeply subsidized rental housing for persons with severe and persistent mental illnesses. The program’s 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. Open-ended leases and housing which varies in type and location allow consumers 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 four-unit residence located in Shelby County, in the Shelbyville area. In 2007, Wellspring initiated a leased-housing initiative which provides supportive services specifically for 10 residents with mental illness who have been chronically homeless.

Some of Our Stories: Celebrating Over O

ne of Ardery House’s first residents, Steve exemplifies the success of Wellspring’s programming. For Steve, the combination of stable housing and supportive services “completely turned my illness around,” he says. Now living successfully at Broadway House, Steve recalls that learning to set realistic goals and conscientiously follow through with them helped him learn to manage his illness. He also found that the peer support services were especially important in helping him get back into the community. “Continuing my work has helped me learn a lot of patience, and has given me a lot of satisfaction.” Steve reflects on how Wellspring helped him learn how to recognize the symptoms of his mental illness and deal with them responsibly, and what a difference that made in his life. “I had a choice for mental health… and I chose Wellspring.” 

R

ichard credits his long history with Wellspring for his success in living with his mental illness. He has faced a long line of challenges over the course of his lifetime, but with Wellspring’s support he has persevered. “I’m just lucky to be here.” he says, having struggled through two bouts of cancer and hip replacement surgery. He adds, “Going through all that, Wellspring became my family.” After 14 years of living “with the guys” at Wellspring’s Broadway House, Richard moved into his own apartment and has enjoyed having his own place for 7 years now. Even with a broken ankle that makes navigating the steps a real challenge, Richard still gets up and goes out every day. He says that’s an important thing for him; having something to do, and somewhere to go, no matter what. “People have been surprised that I’ve held up under all this,” says Richard. “It wasn’t easy, but Wellspring saved my life, and I’m not going to give up on it now!” 

“I

t was the Art Therapy Program at the CSU that helped me blossom,” says Lynn with a glow on her face. “It offered a way to express myself constructively, and boosted my self-esteem tremendously,” she added. Lynn has a long history of hospital stays and Crisis Stabilization Unit visits, a period of time at Wellspring’s Ardery House and years of supported living at Concord House. “They saved my life,” she says, “and now I live on my own, and I’m pursuing my art.” Lynn has exhibited through several private art shows, and her work was included in an event at the LVAA. She has also become active in consumer advocacy work; she recently made a presentation to the Metro Council. In her spare time Lynn authored her story of recovery and is working on getting it published. “It feels good, not needing Wellspring in my life on a daily basis now – but I know that the CSU is there any time I need it, and that really means a lot to my peace of mind.”

25 Years of Direct Client Services A

nn says life at Concord House means “there’s always someone there for you! I never thought I’d have my own apartment. But now, besides an apartment, I have a great roommate, my own checking account, and I’m my own payee, which means I’ve taken on a lot of responsibility!” Ann lived with her elderly father until, after an episode that required hospitalization, the doctor told her about Wellspring. Ann came to Ardery House and saw that with the support she received from Wellspring she could make it on her own. “Now it’s like I’m part of a sisterhood. At our apartments, we’re all friends and we all help one another out. And,” she adds with a giggle, “they call me the chatterbox!” 

“I

say, I’m a survivor!” Tanya exclaims. After years of battling addictions to alcohol and gambling, in addition to her mental illness, she finally made her way to Wellspring’s Journey House. “Even though it took two tries, it was the Journey House program that worked for me,” she shares. “They stuck with me, and I stuck with them – and that’s what pulled me through.” After 5 years of living in a Wellspring apartment, she now has the most seniority of any of the apartment complex’s residents. Tanya says she enjoys the camaraderie and the security that comes with knowing everyone around her. Now a Wellspring employee, Tanya is glad to have the chance to help others by her example. Tanya adds, “When others know that you can do it, and put their trust in you to do it – then your goal is met!” 

L

ooking back on her journey of recovery, Donna recounts periods of estrangement from her family, frustrating attempts at self-medication and numerous hospitalizations, and adds “I’d all but given up hope – but then I found Wellspring!” After a stay at Ardery House, Donna found a home at Journey House. “It took twenty-one months of work, and that’s the longest anyone’s ever been at Journey House,” she reflects. “But they helped me learn the skills and coping mechanisms to do the plan – and it’s paid off so well, I don’t ever want that other life back again!” Donna proudly points to her achievements. “I’ve had my own apartment for two years, and I’m my own payee now!” She loves decorating her apartment, shopping, and spending time with her family. “It means so much to be welcomed back into their lives!” Donna says, through a beaming smile. “Now I have two new goals – I want to find a job and get a car so I can see my children even more often!”
