The Bloom Closet

At The Bloom Closet, our mission is to
make foster children feel special.
Because they are.

A boutique-like shopping experience for foster children and their families.

When children are removed from their homes by the Department of Family and Children’s Services, they are confused and often at the lowest time of their lives. If that’s not hard enough, nine out of ten of them arrive into the foster care system with nothing but the clothes on their backs. They deserve to feel and look like the best child they can be.

Bloom gets to work on that immediately. That’s why The Bloom Closet was created. The Bloom Closet provides Georgia’s foster children with free clothing, shoes, baby gear, books, toys, and school supplies. Items are either new or gently used. The environment is that of a whimsical children’s boutique.

Ways to support The Bloom Closet

As a non-profit organization, Bloom relies on the donations of individuals and groups to help meet the needs of displaced children and youth. Your tax-deductible donations will be offered free-of-charge to foster children living in the state of Georgia.

Donate Items

The Bloom Closet relies on donations of new and gently used children’s items. You can support The Bloom Closet by donating items, organizing a group donation drive, or purchasing items from our Amazon Wishlist.

Make a Gift

The Bloom Closet is 100% donor-funded and relies on donations from individuals, businesses, and foundations. All monetary donations are tax-deductible and go directly towards serving foster children.

Volunteer

Volunteers sort and organize clothing donations, or spend time one-on-one with the children as they shop in the store. Bloom welcomes individual volunteers as well as groups.
