This is Wellspring's mission. Their vision is to create a community in which every child has a safe and stable home. For over 125 years, they have been helping kids and families triumph over trauma.
SOCIAL + MENTAL
Wellspring is a nonprofit, multi-service agency serving low-income and vulnerable individuals, children and families in Seattle and King County.
Providing social and mental health services that help strengthen families, they offer services in four areas: mental health, family homelessness, early learning, and basic needs.
A SHOW UP IN CRISIS
They not only assist their target audience during moments of crisis but they also embark along in their journey back to health,
through the worst
as well as their rebirth into stability, making sure changes and habits are effectively made and solidified.
DATA AS GROUND
They are backed up by a lot of research in the area of brain development, but they do not forget the heart.
On their brochure, the attention with the data diagrams signalizes not only how lucidly they see research but also that this is the beauty in their process —
in the Greek sense
that beauty is truth.
EDUCATING ALL INVOLVED
With their passion for the clarity brought by scientific research, they can empower themselves and others to act under the ground, where the seed is.
Staring directly at the roots of problems without upending them
to the effect.
KIDS ARE SEEDS
They are very much focused on children, as they believe issues are easier and more effectively taken care of early on — and the logo brings this thought.
The earlier a seed is tended to the bigger the chances it will fructify.
PARTNER WITH BIG WHALES
Aligning with Wellspring's almost oceanic sense of community — their grasp of this large net, organic and moving, but always connected — there was a need to thank those who, for 25 years now, have been helping them breaking the debilitating cycles of instability, homelessness and adversity to achieve positive, permanent change in so many disturbed lives.
In this sense, their work is well rounded and has yield significant results to such an important nuclear realm in communities:
FOUNDED IN 1892!
Wellspring is doing a unique work in their field because it deals with family issues at a deeper level and for an extended time.
The deeper the issue, the more honest a narrative can be.
I had the honor to design their institutional brochure, luncheon invitation kit, donor report brochure, and donors' thank you note.
