There are over 7,000 children in the foster care system in the state of Georgia. Removed from their homes because they were abused, neglected or left stranded by a family tragedy. They are scared and confused. Grieving, separated from the only life they ever knew.
But, there is hope – and a solution.
Our goal is to dramatically change the life path of these children. For good. We are Bloom.
Bloom exists to lift displaced children out of the darkness they have been dealt. To give them hope and a home life. To strengthen them for the next phase of their lives.
As a foster parent, you are given the rare opportunity to help shape a child’s life. Until a permanent outcome is resolved. Though foster care is temporary, the relationship is always. And the rewards are eternal. A child needs you. Very possibly, this is what you need in your life.
"Becoming a foster family is one of the best decisions we could have made as a family. Our teenager was beginning to withdraw and spend a lot of time in her room. Having a baby in our home brought her out of seclusion and drew us closer as a family. Many people do not grasp the magnitude of the problem and the desperate need for foster families. This has been the most emotional experience I have ever had."
-Kristi, a Bloom Foster Parent

Children are vitally important to the future of all of us. We can’t afford to let a single one of them go astray or fall through the cracks. You can stand in support of these children during the most vulnerable time of their lives. You can let them feel the stability of a nurturing environment of caring adults. You can be the light at the end of their tunnel. Their hero.
