The first of its kind, this on campus house hosts AmeriCorps VISTA participants in the Lake Erie region. Discounted rent is supplemented through VISTA volunteer hours on BLOOM’s campus. Located in one of the poorest communities in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, our housing collaboration with AmeriCorps VISTA is a perfect mission match to bring individuals and communities out of poverty.Learn More

YMCA Summer Youth Food Program
Each Summer, BLOOM Collaborative and the YMCA ensure fewer kids and teens go hungry. While children in low-income communities receive free or reduced-cost meals during the school year, less than one third of these same kids have access to meals when school is out. Combining food and fun, the program provides nutritious meals and snacks plus activities to keep kids minds and bodies active all Summer long.!Learn More
