About

Personal Shopper - Work with our clients individually, providing them with a wardrobe tailored to their needs, and personalized attention to boost their sense of self-worth and hope.

Bloom is a non‐profit organization that provides complimentary wardrobes to men, women, and children who are transitioning to a life of self‐reliance. Our clients are among the low income or working poor populations who are referred by supporting social services agencies. The population served includes participants in substance abuse recovery programs, victims of spousal abuse, as well as others who are homeless, jobless, or suffering from economic hardship. Bloom not only provides clothes to satisfy the requirements of the workplace, but also to enhance the social and recreational needs of our clients who are working to transition to a life of self‐sufficiency. Bloom is the only non-profit in the United States to provide wardrobes for the entire family at no fee to the client.

On the initial visit, two personal shoppers work with each client, offering a one-on-one wardrobe consultation and professional dressing. Each client receives a two-week, mix-and-match wardrobe and accessories. After six months, the client may schedule a second appointment to receive a change of season wardrobe. More than 60 people volunteer as personal shoppers to clients. Our volunteers are dedicated to improving our client's self-esteem by helping them choose an appropriate, functional, and flattering wardrobe.
