Bloom’s Transition Home

When a child in Ukraine grows up in an orphanage, they become institutionalized and learn very little life skills that will allow them to function in the real world.  We are partnering with our Ukraine team to offer a transition home for aging-out orphans.  This home will provide the opportunity to teach work/school study responsibilities, chores, hygiene, cooking, and most importantly, the love of God. They will have daily responsibilities that will help them learn how to function independently.  Each night there will be a Bible study, where all of the kids will meet together.  It is truly a way to save a life, as the statistics for orphans on the street are staggering, with many ending up in jail, sex trafficking, and even suicide.  This ministry will help save a life, one child at a time.

Zhytomyr, Ukraine – a city in the Northwestern, rural area of Ukraine. It is the administrative center of the Zhytomyr Oblast, as well as the administrative center of the surrounding Zhytomyr Region.

This is where BLOOM purchased just over 3 acres of land and has been working the past 3 years to complete BLOOM Home for Kids (a transition home for aging out orphans, full of God’s Love).

The chapel on the property was completely rebuilt over the past 18 months and has new heating, electricity, insulated walls, new trusses and roof which allowed for a 2nd floor for mission teams to “land” with office, full bath and sleeping area, and on the lower level: a small kitchen, two offices and preschool area for the children to learn!

A new septic system was also completed and commercial gas lines are funded and will be redone in the Spring to serve both buildings.
