The Healing Power of Family

We nurture happy, healthy families.

With a focus on the whole family, Wellroot’s evidence-based programs were designed to keep families together whenever possible, provide short-term foster families when needed, and nurture and educate teens and young adults to break the cycle of trauma in their lives.

We Belong Together

Family is more than a last name, genetics, or proximity. Family is essential because we all yearn to feel like we belong to something greater than ourselves.  Family is a feeling. A feeling of commitment, belonging, and, most of all, love. It might be easy to take this concept for granted, yet thousands of families are in crisis in Georgia. Fortunately, you can help change that.

Our Programs

 As a ministry of the United Methodist Church in North Georgia, Wellroot Family Services’ programs were designed to make an impact on children and families through faith-centered service. With a focus on supporting youth from infancy through early adulthood, we help people reach their God-given potential through the encouragement and love of a healthy home.
