Second-hand Store Benefits Victims of Sex Trafficking

Print More

We all have closets full of old clothes that don’t fit and houses filled with dust-collecting knick-knacks.  Wellspring Living, through their upscale resale boutiques Wellspring Treasures, is turning those gently used items into help for victims of sexual abuse and trafficking.

Wellspring Living has been offering therapy and education to sexual abuse victims for ten years.  Run almost entirely by volunteers, all proceeds from the three Wellspring Treasures stores benefit the women and girls involved with the programs.

“The women who come to the Wellspring Living house commit to 6 months or a year,” said volunteer Haley Welsh.  After leaving the house, the women live with a family who help them transition into their own place.

All three Wellspring Treasures stores located in the metro Atlanta area accept donations six days a week.
