Wellspring Welcomes Talia Cass as New Communications Director

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Wellspring, the domestic violence and sexual assault services resource for Saratoga and Washington County residents, welcomes Talia Cass to the organization as the new communications director. Cass comes to Wellspring with more than 6 years of experience in communications and marketing. 

As communications director, Cass will be responsible for disseminating the Wellspring brand, educating the public on the complexities of relationship and sexual abuse and promoting the many crucial services the organization provides survivors. Additionally, she will champion Wellspring’s community engagement effort, which includes facilitating educational programs with Saratoga county school-aged youth and adults. 

Cass, a 2014 College of Saint Rose graduate, most recently served as an account strategist for Overit Media in Albany. Prior to Overit, she worked with multiple non-profit organizations including Discover Saratoga (also known as the Saratoga Convention and Tourism Bureau) and Proctors. During her time as a director of marketing and communications for Discover Saratoga in 2017, Cass began volunteering with Wellspring as part of their community engagement committee. She is passionate about ending domestic violence and sexual assault in our community and advocating for LGBTQIA+ rights. 

Wellspring’s mission is to support survivors and engage the community to end relationship and sexual abuse. Each year, Wellspring’s crisis intervention and survivor services support more than 1,000 clients—providing safe housing to adults and children either fleeing or homeless because of domestic violence, as well as comprehensive support in the form of counseling, legal advocacy, and case management. Wellspring staff provides prevention and education programs to school-aged youth, as well as training and education programs for parents, faith-based congregations and professional organizations.
