We increase safety and healing among 11-24 year olds who have been impacted by interpersonal violence through a Text/Chat Helpline, Peer Support Groups, as well as individual advocacy services, case management, safety planning, trauma therapy

and ongoing emotional support.  

STUDENT-LED AWARENESS, outreach & peer support 

 

 We activate students as peer advocates who amplify our mission, engage in honest peer to peer conversations and lead their campus communities in the work to bring love on others more by cultivating a culture of empathy, respect and consent for all.

teen survivor perspective

"Sexual assault and domestic violence are painful and awkward subjects. The fact that I didn't get the information I needed in school solely because it was an awkward and painful subject was devastating to me. I am a survivor and BLOOM365 gave me hope and helped me see that the abuse I experienced was not my fault."  

interruptING youth violence perpetration

 

We interrupt and reduce interpersonal violence by providing trauma informed prevention education, life skills training and treatment to youth at risk for perpetration. By intervening early we will prevent harm and save lives.

Trainings for TRUSTED ADULTs:

Parents, Schools, and Service ProviderS

 

We train parents, caregivers, school personnel, School Resource Officers, youth counselors, service providers, and other "trusted adults" to recognize, remove and respond to the help seeking barriers faced by youth experiencing, witnessing

or perpetrating violence.

"All I’ve got to say is WOW! If you are in a youth serving organization, interact or engage youth on a regular basis, advocate for youth, investigate crimes involving youth, or teach youth in a school setting....I wholeheartedly recommend this course! It's a truly engaging virtual experience, the content and evidence based research is sure to keep your attention. Virtual training is difficult to navigate but I was fully engaged throughout the entire Trusted Adult Ally Training experience!"
