About

The mission of The Spring of Tampa Bay, Inc. is to prevent domestic violence, protect victims and promote change in lives, families and communities.

OUR STORY

Since our founding in 1977, The Spring has provided sanctuary and services to more than 60,000 abused adults and their children.

The Spring is the Department of Children and Families (DCF) certified Domestic Violence Center for Hillsborough County. We are one of the largest of Florida’s 42 certified domestic violence centers and the first domestic violence agency in the United States to have an accredited on-site school for resident children.

The Spring’s programs and services help victims of domestic violence rebuild their lives and raise awareness to prevent domestic violence from occurring.

Donor Privacy Policy: The Spring of Tampa Bay deeply appreciates the support of our donors. Without you, our advocates could not prevent domestic violence or keep victims and their children safe. To that end, we pledge we will NOT share or sell your personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations to the contact information you have provided to us.
If you have any questions about our donor privacy policy, please email your question to donate@thespring.org and one of our staff members will be happy to answer your query.
