Ongoing partnership empowers child trafficking victims to rebuild happy and healthy lives
Amerigroup Georgia has reaffirmed its commitment to combat human trafficking and protect the most vulnerable children in Georgia with an additional $100,000 donation to Wellspring Living. This contribution further strengthens their longstanding partnership to help young victims escape the clutches of human trafficking and embark on a journey of healing and restoration.
The issue of human trafficking has garnered significant attention across Georgia, with key figures, including First Lady Marty Kemp, and child protection agencies working in collaboration with law enforcement agencies in every county. Recognizing the urgency and gravity of this issue, Amerigroup Georgia continues to play a pivotal role in supporting Wellspring Living’s vital mission.
The construction of Wellspring Living’s new South Campus in Fulton County will mark a significant milestone in providing support for children escaping human trafficking. At the new facility, these resilient youth can find solace, receive immediate assistance, undergo critical medical assessments, and resume their education. Wellspring Living’s transitional program aims to stabilize their lives while long-term solutions are meticulously crafted.
Wellspring Living’s Bridge Community is just one example of the invaluable services they provide. This safe residential environment offers shelter to women and their children, leading to permanent housing solutions for families affected by human trafficking. Amerigroup Georgia, in collaboration with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia, previously contributed $400,000 to assist Wellspring in completing their first facility, demonstrating their unwavering dedication to making a lasting impact.
“At Wellspring, we deeply understand that addressing human trafficking requires a collaborative approach, and Amerigroup Georgia has consistently demonstrated its commitment to our cause,” said Mary Frances Bowley, Executive Director, Wellspring Living. “This latest donation enables us to expand our services, provide comprehensive support to survivors, and strengthen our prevention initiatives. Together we are making a profound impact in the fight against human trafficking, and we are grateful for Amerigroup’s unwavering support in our missions to restore lives and build a brighter future for survivors in Georgia.”
This latest $100,000 donation builds upon Amerigroup Georgia’s earlier commitment of $200,000, directed to educational programming at Wellspring Living’s Women’s Academy. This comprehensive approach addresses the multifaceted needs of survivors, empowering them with the skills and knowledge necessary for a path towards personal growth and fulfillment.
