Bloomin' Boutique provides foster and underprivileged youth new clothing and other items to the extent made possible by your generous donations. We cover boys and girls of all ages infant through 18 years. Using a referral process, we partner with other community organizations and agencies to provide these services; we do not accept fulfillment requests directly from families or individuals.
Bloomin' Boutique assists children at all phases of their lives. Bloomin' Baby provides starter packages including clothing, blanket, gift cards for diapers and formula to mom's with new babies. Our Summer Get-Away Package supports foster kids by providing sleeping bag, pillow, backpack, toiletries and summer clothes so they can truly enjoy their time at summer camp. Our Cap & Gown Assistance Program pays the bill to outfit high school graduates with their cap and gown so they can confidently celebrate this momentous occasion with their peers. Our Hand Up for Higher Education Program provides college scholarships to qualified high school seniors giving them the self-confidence to demand more of themselves and to succeed.

Our store, aptly named Bloomin' Boutique, is open by appointment only to high school students accompanied by their advocate. Each high schooler receives the individual attention that they deserve. Upon entering this ever-changing emporium filled with beautiful clothes in all sizes, each high schooler "goes shopping", selecting and trying on the clothes of their choosing. These one-on-one shopping experiences are incredibly rewarding - both to the high schooler and the volunteers helping them with their choices! For some high schoolers, these are the first new clothes they have ever worn or the first shopping experience they have ever had. All other requests will be fulfilled by Bloomin' Boutique volunteers and must be picked up by the advocate.
