Change the Soil of Chicago

Become a monthly donor, help us restore communities impacted by poverty-induced gun violence to safe, abundant, and liberated sites of Oasis.


More than 41,000 Americans lose their lives to gun violence every year. Your monthly donation sustains wellness structures that empower Black women, families, and communities to thrive beyond gun violence.

How is our BLOOM Program changing the soil of Chicago?

We are prioritizing the wellness of Black mothers and women. We know that when they’re well, Black women can lead their families and communities with greater agency to fight against the impacts of poverty-induced gun violence. To make this a reality, BLOOM Cohort participants receive deep care through over 60 hours of in-person support, 20 wellness programs, and 10 hours of free counseling each over the course of 6 months.
