Experience Wellspring’s Sources of Strength PhotoVoice Exhibit

In spring 2023, three Wellspring participants collaborated with Essential PhotoVoice on a group storytelling project, Sources of Strength. PhotoVoice is a creative way to invite people to share their often untold stories through photographs, reflection, and writing. Sources of Strength is the result of this collective exchange. 

The exhibit premiered at Wellspring’s 2023 Spring Event and is on permanent display at our historic main campus. Experience these moving stories by watching the Sources of Strength companion video and by seeing the installation in person.

Contact Mary Hardwick by email or by phone at 978-281-3558 x300 to reserve your place.  

This project was made possible with the collaboration of Essential Partners.

Wellspring’s Adult Education classes most definitely helped me improve my academic skills but also helped me reach my educational goals towards attending college. Without Wellspring this would not have been a possibility.



Wellspring helped guide me back to school through the ESOL and College Readiness Classes. I am now attending North Shore Community College to become an LPN.



Wellspring mentoring and classes, including role playing and notes, helped me tremendously with interviewing skills. The assistance with my resume and cover letters was invaluable and has helped me successfully get jobs I wanted.
