Wellmore was formed with a bold and ambitious plan to combine the resources of two strong non-profits with deep community roots and create an innovative, lifespan-oriented community behavioral health model, which will radically improve our capabilities to meet community needs. Wellmore serves its client to provide wellness for a lifetime.
Wellmore, Inc. was founded on October 1, 2011 through the initiation of a proactive affiliation of Wellpath, Inc. and Morris Foundation, Inc. The alignment of programs and services will be completed in 2012.
Wellpath began in 1951 as the Child Guidance Clinic of Greater Waterbury, a local program serving less than 100 children a year. It grew into a regional provider of comprehensive and integrated behavioral health services for children and families.
Morris Foundation began in 1968 as a halfway house for male alcoholics and was named for the first benefactor, Morris Rosenblum. It expanded to include treatment services for alcohol, other drug addiction and mental illness in men, women and adolescents.
Our new organization, Wellmore Behavioral Health, serves a 49-town region spanning from Greater Waterbury to the lower Naugatuck Valley and northwest Connecticut and has nearly 300 employees at 12 sites. Wellmore is expected to serve more than 15,000 clients on an annual basis, including children, adolescents, adults and entire families.
