Our goal is to dramatically change the life path of these children for good. We are Bloom.

The Bloom Closet

The Bloom Closet provides Georgia’s foster children with free clothing, baby gear, books and school supplies. Items are either new or gently used. The environment is that of a fun store. Our mission is to make foster children feel special. Because they are.

Foster Parent Program

Foster parents are not guardians, nor do they have legal custody of a child in their care, but they are an important part of the decision-making process regarding a child’s safety, well-being and permanency.

Volunteer with Bloom

Volunteers are the heartbeat of our organization. We are seeking more individuals and groups who are willing to donate their time and talents to help foster youth thrive. Will you help?

FOSTER PARENTING MAY BE THE NOBLEST THING YOU’LL DO IN 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
