Wellspring

Wellspring is a Christian youth development organization located in the Brightmoor/Old Redford Neighborhoods of Northwest Detroit. Our mission is to assist urban youth in developing themselves spiritually, socially, academically, and economically. Our Christian identity leads us to provide human service programming to all regardless of religious interest or affiliation (such as with our Academic & Recreation Program), as well as to provide to interested youth the opportunity to engage in spiritual and moral development through Christian discipleship (such as with our Teen Discipleship Group)
