Transformation Through Exploration.

Pella Well Works Bag Sealer

Learning Experiences and Deeper Exploration into Areas of Instability

We know the transformation journey can take time, patience, and a lot of hard work. Many classes and programs at The Well are scheduled and require a level of commitment to participate, thus signup is needed. Others are ongoing weekly where you can participate as you wish. Some programs are available for our clients, and others are offered to all community members. Contact The Well in your location for more information about your local programming.

I've got good support now.

“I first got connected with The Well when my husband was in jail. I thought it was just a thrift store. After I got here, I started coming regularly every week. My number one (priority) was to stay sober. Stay out of prison. Drop drugs. Get my life together. I’ve got good support now which I didn’t have before. I have a lot to be grateful for.”

It's probably the best thing that happened to me.

“I thought it was just another rehab type thing so I was kind of leary of it (The Well). But now I found out it was completely different…I’m living on my own now, I’ve been clean for over a year. It’s just a new world for me right now. It’s probably the best thing that’s happened to me, besides my son being born.”

I was getting clean...

“About three and a half years ago, someone told me about a class at The Well.”

I am not defined by my past.

“I know now that God has given everybody gifts and talents and abilities, but I’ve always been told I’m worthless. I’m not.”

I've never had my own place before.

“The Well helped me get an apartment for the first time ever. It was nice. I was a house hopper, like I lived on people’s couches and stuff; it was not good.”

Programming Focuses On…

Holistic Approach

In our experience, someone who is struggling typically has multiple areas in their life that may be inhibiting their and their family’s ability to thrive. Through our holistic approach of identifying these areas and guiding our clients on a path forward, The Well provides programming and classes centered around these areas:


  • Emotional Health
  • Spiritual Health
  • Life Skills
  • Addictions / Recovery
  • Healing
  • Health and Wellness

Programming Focuses On…


We create safe spaces to explore our relationship with God, our identity, value and worth. It’s hard work to counter what the culture tells us about ourselves, our past, and our ability to achieve a future where dependencies can be broken and hope can be found.

Community Collaboration

Every community is different. Our goal is not to duplicate resources and programming, as we value the good work already being done by others. We strive to build relationships and partnerships with local organizations, programs, and resources in which to advocate for and refer clients to each other. We do know there are factors that may prevent someone from participating, so we evaluate needs and gaps, and aligning with our values and goals, may provide options that meet those needs.
