Outreach for Motherless Girls and Kinship Care Grandmothers!
We provide outreach to girls who have lost their mothers and assist grandmothers who are raising grandchildren (Kinship Care).
Grandparents who are taking on the parenting role for their grandchildren, thus, foregoing the traditional grandparent/grandchild relationship. They must take responsibility financially and for day-to-day maintenance of a home, schedules, meals, homework, etc. Blooming Compassion seeks to provide financial assistance to low income kinship care givers. The end goal is helping the children.
Girls whose mothers have passed away. We provide encouragement.
What motherless girls need . . .
1. They need someone to get excited about their achievements and celebrate their joys.
2. These girls aren't always sure where to get their "mom questions" answered. Perhaps you can provide some guidance in a supportive and kind manner.
3. If possible, try to remember this girl on special occasions like her birthday, graduations, and holidays.
Motherless teens who feel unappreciated and unacknowledged often go on to live with tremendous hunger for recognition ("applause hunger").

According to the United States Census Bureau, in 2014 more than 13 million children are living with their grandparents.
As of 2017, over 3 million grandparents are now responsible for the care and raising of their grandchildren.
The average income of 35% of grandparents raising grandchildren is less than $24,000. This adds to the pressure of families that may already be struggling financially
Why are so many grandparents raising their grandchildren? Because their children are unable to take cae of their own children, due to addiction, mental illness, incarceration, death, and other reasons.
