On May 21st, over 120 community members, including civic and business leaders, gathered alongside Bloom staff to celebrate the grand opening of our new facility in Rome. Attendees of the grand opening had the opportunity to hear from Bloom leadership and staff, as well as Restoration Rome Co-Founders Jeff and Mary Margaret Mauer, as they announced the expansion of critically needed foster care support services in the region.

“The opening of our Rome facility marks a significant milestone in our mission to provide localized support for foster children,” said Becky Davenport, CEO of Bloom. “Our goal is to keep children in their communities where they can thrive and heal surrounded by familiar environments.”

Bloom’s expansion into Rome represents an important step in addressing the growing needs of foster children in northwest Georgia. With nearly 800 children requiring services in the region and almost half placed elsewhere in the state, Bloom’s presence will provide much-needed local support. By offering foster children a supportive environment close to home, Bloom aims to reduce the trauma of displacement.

The integration into Rome is strengthened by Bloom’s collaboration with local partner Restoration Rome, a community-driven initiative led by Co-Founders Jeff and Mary Margaret Mauer. Their dedication to family restoration services has paved the way for Bloom to seamlessly integrate and expand its impact in Rome.

“As Bloom embarks on this new chapter, we invite the Rome community to support our mission of nurturing every child’s potential,” said Bloom Board Chairman Vince Williams. “Whether through fostering, volunteering, donating, or advocacy, every individual can help create a brighter future for vulnerable children and families.”
