About The Well Community
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 dealing with serious mental illnesses. The Well Community provides a place to belong for those who struggle with mental illnesses and are thirsty for acceptance, support and meaningful relationships. The Well offers hope and healing through best-practice interventions, friendships and the power of faith. The Well’s philosophy of care, relational interventions and holistic rehabilitation combine to make a significant impact upon those we are called to serve.
For coronavirus precautions, all daily programs and worship at The Well Community are temporarily suspended. Lunches for members of The Well and clients of Mission Oak Cliff can be picked up from noon-1pm at The Well door, Monday through Thursday. In addition to the meal, personal care items such as toilet paper, bottled water, toothpaste and body wash are provided to members through the generosity of donors.

What we ARE Doing
Isolation brought on by stigma and marginalization are crippling challenges for those with severe mental illnesses. While The Well is not able to serve its members during this time as it normally does, we are continuing to care for them in many ways. In addition to the meals and personal items mentioned above, our staff regularly checks in with our members. Each Friday, Alice Zaccarello, Executive Director, visits with residents of Jacob’s house (6 feet from them) to continue to monitor their mental health and remind them of COVID 19 protocols. During the lunch pick-up, staff chat with members, offering encouragement and counsel. Our Thursday Night Life message is delivered through online video. It is given by various of our favorite local clergy and lay people.

- No Matter What - “Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs. The ones who accept you for who you are. The ones that would do anything to see you smile, and who love you no matter what.” (source unknown) Members of The Well Community know these thoughts to be so very […]
