the Well Community

The Well is a works to bring love and health to adults living with serious mental illness in the Dallas area, empowering them through community.

Rationale for Service:

Currently, Texas is ranked 49th among states for per capita mental health spending and recently received a “D” grade by the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness, Grading the States 2009). Dallas’ mental health care system is now in serious peril. The NorthSTAR program provides the region’s managed mental health care. In the last te

Kind words from one of our treasured volunteers. Cerena, we are so thankful God brought you to us!

What it Means to Volunteer at the Well Community.

About three years ago, I asked God to put me where He needed me – The Well Community was the place He chose. I was excited for the opportunity to serve God by serving others and am thrilled to be a part of this very loving and generous organization. The dedicated people who work there are passionate about their calling. In addition to the employees, there are those who donate money and goods to help The Well members.

Even though the pandemic has modified the way we are able to serve the members, it hasn’t diminished the devotion – in fact, the devotion has increased as the community recognizes the urgent need to help the underserved individuals who come to the door needing lunch or hygiene supplies, shoes, clothing, or assistance with personal matters.

The things that amaze me about the Well Members are their faith in God and their recognition of their blessings; often they help others who have even less. They are genuinely grateful for the food and things that they are provided. Their strength and courage humble me, and I am abundantly blessed and honored to be a part of this Community.

About The Well

Those who struggle with mental illnesses are thirsty for acceptance, support and meaningful relationships. Offering hope and healing through best-practice interventions, friendships and the power of faith, The Well Community provides a place to belong.

Founded in 2002, The Well Community is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. While it started as a simple, church outreach to a handful of people, The Well has grown into a flourishing, significant ministry among adults recovering from serious mental illnesses. The Well’s philosophy of care, relational interventions and holistic rehabilitation combine to make a significant impact upon those we are called to serve.

Throughout each week, people living with serious and disabling mental illness come to the Well and are warmly welcomed into our community. Accustomed to living in the shadows of society where they had often been neither noticed nor needed, the Well receives them as “Community Members.” We are seeing those we serve transformed!

For those experiencing mental illness and the accompanying poverty, the services offered by the Well are critical to their well-being and health. Recovery from serious mental illness must be holistic in scope, involving the whole person (body, mind, will, emotions, and soul), and supported by a life-giving community that offers respect and access to decent housing and meaningful work.

Our services are primarily delivered through our weekday, Community Life Center (“CLC”). Open Monday through Thursday (8:00am–3:00pm), the CLC offers a restorative environment for people who have had their lives drastically disturbed and need the support of others in moving toward health.

Participation in the CLC gives our Community Members the opportunity to rejoin the worlds of friendship, family, work and to access the services and supports they may individually need.

Our programming is based upon a mental health best practice called the “clubhouse model of psychosocial rehabilitation.” Our focus is on the strengths, talents, and abilities of our Community Members, not their illness, with the goal of helping some return to the workplace.

Currently, there are over 400 clubhouses in 30 countries around the world. By 2010, the Well is working to become the only certified program in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex and one of only four in Texas.

In addition, through supportive housing, we assist our Community Members in securing safe, decent, and affordable housing. We assist higher functioning individuals in securing private apartments, and, at Jacob’s House, we operate a more structured program, currently housing eight men in a group format.
