Bloom operates five homes in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania to help women survivors of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation throughout their journey – helping them to start over, to begin to heal and providing them with the hope to transition to a better life.
The Heather and Jasmine Houses are two-year residential programs for women survivors of sex trafficking, sexual exploitation and addiction. These homes provide structure and support to heal, empower and employ women survivors through safe housing, trauma-informed programming, partnerships with treatment providers, vocational and educational training, and ongoing connections with a growing community of supporters that believe it’s never too late to start over. This program operates without 24-hour staff or live-in supervision and all services are offered to the women participants at no cost to them.
The Mountain Laurel House is a two-year program for women survivors of sex trafficking, exploitation and addiction, specifically providing a safe space for pregnant survivors as they heal, deliver and care for their baby.
The Lilac and Lily Houses are fee-based independent living residences for program graduates as they transition to a life of independence.
My sister's Closet:
Our upscale resale boutique, My Sister’s Closet, located in Bethlehem, Pa., provides employment opportunities for program participants and financial support for Bloom.
We believe art heals and that everyone deserves a chance to start over. The Bloom Creative Studio in Bangor, Pa., is a supportive workplace for women leaving lives of addiction and violence. Our Studio offers art classes as well as hosts parties and events for the public, and our gift shop offers handcrafted items made with love and purpose. All purchases help blaze a path for physical, mental and economic freedom for women survivors.
