The Well in the Desert is a 501c3 non-profit organization that provides daily nutritious hot meals, emergency food assistance, weekly supplemental food distribution and a wide array of services through advocacy to those affected by poverty, including the working poor, the homeless, seniors, the handicapped and others in need throughout the western end of the Coachella Valley. Our mission fuels programs for poverty prevention, direct services for poverty intervention, and an organized effort to advocate for the poor.

Impact: The presence in Palm Springs over the last 20 years has been vital to both those in need and the community at large. They are a positive force in the community, and will continue to provide much needed services to all in the City of Palm Springs. It was an honor to receive the humanitarian award for Community Service from the Palm Springs Human Rights Commission, and shall continue to live up to those standards of service for as long as the needs are there.
