The WellHouse began through The Samaritan Woman Ministry. The mission given to the original ministry was to pray and offer help to the women who were lost in the Woodlawn community of Birmingham, Alabama. Upon realizing NO shelters would accept these women unconditionally, it was placed on our hearts to open a home with NO prerequisites or requirements, other than being a victim of sexual exploitation.
After conducting extensive research, the launch team saw the link between prostitution and human trafficking, thereby broadening the population of women and girls to be helped.
The WellHouse is the only 24---hour shelter offering immediate housing assistance to women being sexually exploited in the Southeast. In comparison to other shelters, The WellHouse enables women to breakdown the barriers often undermining their ability to receive immediate assistance.
We are able to accept women without any pre---qualifications, and help residents receive the assistance they need to obtain identification and documentation to rebuild their lives.
Together, we can change the story of these women and children’s lives.
