The Spring’s mission is to prevent domestic violence, protect victims, and promote change in lives, families and communities.
Founded by a community of churches and concerned women in South Tampa, The Spring began in a small bungalow, as two women opened up their home as a safe haven for a friend who needed to escape an abusive relationship. Word quickly spread about this safe haven and more women came forward needing shelter. Soon this network of community members quickly outgrew their capacity to shelter the abused inside their own home. And in 1984, their first shelter was built, with only four bedrooms. Today, The Spring has grown to be one of the largest domestic violence shelters in the state of Florida with 128-beds in their emergency shelter.
Since their founding in 1977, The Spring has provided a safe haven and comprehensive supportive services to more than 60,000 abused adults and their children, and have answered calls all hours of the day and night from well over 150,000 women in crisis.
The Spring offers many different services:
