The Well

A RECOVERY AND HOUSING PROGRAM

The Well is a community for women in recovery from sexual assault, sexual exploitation, and sex trafficking. The mission of The Well is to provide sanctuary along with an array of support services and educational opportunities for women who have been trafficked, forced to partake in non-consensual sex acts, and sexually exploited.

Developed primarily as a safe house, The Well’s residential program provides long-term secure housing as a haven from social, psychological and economic factors. Services are provided free of charge and are aimed at developing a foundation of recovery and stability, leading to independent and healthy lives.

The Well safe house is located on 82 acres within Bucks County, PA that is zoned for residential group homes. The house was completely renovated during the summer of 2014, largely through the efforts of volunteers who provided both labor and materials.

BECOME A MENTOR

We know that positive support systems play a vital role in helping women with trauma, substance abuse and criminal justice involvement build successful lives in the community, so our goal is to help cultivate a network of supportive relationships for participants at The Well

The mentoring program connects participants at The Well with other women in the community who can walk alongside them and offer support while on their journey to healing and independence. Mentors are provided training and guidance as they work as role models, advocates, and friends to the participants.
