Wellspring’s ‘regular way of doing business’ was completely transformed by COVID-19 in the spring of 2020. Much of our staffing and educational programming moved online. Extra safety precautions now surround everything we do in our Family Shelter, Affordable Housing, and HiSET (High School Equivalency Testing) programs.

What remains very much the same is Wellspring’s immediate response to help people and families of Cape Ann and the North Shore attain financial support, coaching to handle the stressors associated with housing crises, and customized training for future employment. Our mission is laser focused on families’ financial security, now more than ever.

During this time, there is a limited number of remote volunteer opportunities available. No volunteers are needed on-site at this time.

Please contact Mary Hardwick, Hospitality Manager and Volunteer Coordinator, at (978) 281-3221 ext. 300 or email mhardwick@wellspringhouse.org for more information on the following remote volunteer roles:


  • Adult Learning Initiative: Volunteers for both College Readiness Math and English classes. Learn more here.
  • Wellspring Education Resource Collaborative Mentors: Mentoring for students pursuing jobs and higher education. Next virtual training in May 2021. Learn more here.

Being welcomed into the “family” of Wellspring House has been an extraordinary gift as I have transitioned to retirement. To have the opportunity as a volunteer to share our students’ enthusiasm as they experience a profound personal transformation has been deeply moving.
