The Spring of Tampa Bay

About Us

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.

Mission: To prevent domestic violence, protect victims and promote change in lives, families, and communities.

Our program philosophy is to provide a safe haven for families utilizing an empowerment-based approach. We give victims safe refuge, time to heal, and encouragement to move toward a self-determined life. Participants have time to consider options and make independent choices to move forward in a peaceful life. All services are free of charge.
