In 1980, our organization opened its doors to women in Tulsa, OK as a Baptist women’s shelter in Tulsa, OK. By 1995, the demand for a safe-haven where women could go to escape domestic violence became so great that we moved to a larger location in the Tulsa-metro area and we became known as DaySpring Villa (DSV). DSV was Oklahoma’s first faith-based certified shelter for domestic violence victims. In 2012, we became the first shelter in Oklahoma to be certified by the State Attorney General’s office — offering shelter and restoration services for victims of human sex trafficking.
Today, we are known as The Spring, and every day we open our doors to provide love and safety to victims around the state of Oklahoma and the United States. The Spring represents a new season of life for those seeking refuge and healing. Our visitors are stepping out of a dark and tiresome time seeking life-changing freedom and a new-found hope in God!
Providing a safe-haven and ongoing care for victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, and human sex-trafficking—No matter the length of time of a survivor’s stay, our team is dedicated to building a firm spiritual foundation, restoring emotional health, and providing practical solutions to meet their needs.
