Blossom Place first opened it's doors to young women aging out of the foster care system who are in need of housing, support and resources 5 years ago. After learning about our mission, a representative from the Soroptimists International of the American River group invited us to share at one of their meetings. Our initial contact began in the back room of a Mexican restaurant in Auburn and has grown into a wonderful partnership. This group of business and professional women are committed to helping women and girls achieve their potential, realize their aspirations and have an equal voice in creating strong, peaceful communities. These ladies are exactly the type of role models our Blossom girls need to rise above their current circumstances and the sea of statistics that would limit their potential.
