Vision

Bloom Creative Studio is a program of Connections for Women, a local community-based non-profit organization serving women living in the Slate Belt.  We believe art heals and that everyone deserves a chance to start over.  
Our Studio will be a supportive workplace for women leaving lives of addiction and violence.  They will receive 2 years of rent-free housing while they heal from the trauma life on the streets brings.  When a woman enters our program she begins a 90-day intensive outpatient recovery program and then continues to build a life free from addiction and violence, with trauma informed and art therapy, life coaching and vocational training.  Bloom Bangor graduates go on to live successful, self-sufficient and fulfilling lives, creating a new future for themselves, their families, our community and our economy.
