We Serve Women Transitioning From Incarceration


Our History

THE WELLS CENTER, INC. was formed in 2002 by its visionary leader, Reverend Peggie Wells. After ministering for years in jails and prisons in NC and SC, Peggie knew God's plan for her was to help incarcerated women.

  •  2014: Rev. Wells formed a Board of Directors.
  • 2015: The Wells Center, Inc. Board began a 5-year planning process. The Board updated its vision, mission, and core values.
  • 2015: Rev. Wells began teaching 7-Habits  a series based on Stephen Covey's landmark book, to women in the Forsyth County Detention Center (aka: jail). The Wells Center Inc. has first-hand day-to-day data on the needs of women in our county detention center.
  • 2018: A diverse Board of Directors was established to help propel the vision of The Wells Center, Inc in thoroughly assisting women while incarcerated and upon re-entry. 
  • 2019: Rev. Wells received Trauma Healing Training and is now teaching a 7-week Trauma Healing course to the detained women at Forsyth Detention Center
