About Us

Our Mission

The mission of The Woman at the Well is to promote wellness by empowering, encouraging, and inspiring women who face challenges due to domestic abuse, alcoholism, substance abuse, and/or mental health issues, to create a healthier life. 

Our Vision

Our vision is to transform our community, by taking an active role in empowering individuals. The Woman at the Well is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency providing long-term recovery solutions, crisis/trauma advocacy/support, integrated health & wellness, and education/prevention services to survivors of domestic abuse, mental health, substance use and alcoholism. At our one-stop center located in Taunton, MA we offer outreach services aligned with our mission to help our community and surrounding areas deal with the current substance abuse epidemic impacting our communities.

We Believe

 As survivors of these challenges, we know the incredible need for answers and  solutions necessary to save and change the lives affected by these  complex problems. More often than not, those effected by substance abuse are also the victims of domestic violence and suffering from mental health issues. The Woman at the Well is a one-stop  location for immediate assistance with persons and their families coping with these issues. 

A Founder's Story

Photo of Executive Director

I am a founder of The Woman at the Well, Inc. and also a survivor of many of life’s struggles. I have seen first-hand the devastation substance use, domestic violence and lack of access to mental health services can cause. I have also seen the beauty of a community working together to help families in need recover. With help, I was lucky enough to go from being broken, homeless and unemployable; to being healed and whole, with joy in my heart. 

We are currently seeking donations to further assist women and families in need. We hope our center can offer the same healing to our community I was able to receive. Please consider making your (501c3) tax deductible donation of any amount to our nonprofit organization today. Thank you.
