With that said, please know that our Pella and Knoxville Resource Centers are still holding appointments. Well Works continues to produce product for local manufacturers. The Well has implemented enhanced sanitation practices at our sites, and we will continue to keep those practices in place moving forward. The Well will also continue to follow all Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) recommendations as they pertain to the Well’s operations. Updates on Well Operations will continue to be provided as the situation around COVID-19 changes.

Another practical way we can support our communities is to offer up prayer as the situation unfolds. We pray for the leaders in our communities, county, state, and nation as they process and make decisions around the virus. We pray for discernment in our own lives in how we process the situation. We pray for mercy for those affected. And, we offer praise to a Father who is so much bigger than the circumstances of our days. We’re so thankful for all you do to support the Well.




Our purpose is to combine the love of Christ, the help of our communities and the strength in each person to find new hope for life. 

The Well Resource Center offers help and hope for Marion County people struggling with shortages—with a lack of money, employment, transportation, housing, friends, and more. We use a holistic approach to meet physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. 

Our nonprofit 501(c)3 status makes supporting us tax-deductible. Staff and volunteers support clients and each other with Christian compassion. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay-up-to-date on programs, events and life-transformation at The Well below.
