It’s our favorite time of year! Bloom :: An Event for New & Expecting Moms happens on April 28, 2019 from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. at ACH Child and Family Services. This is an event for expectant moms and moms who are currently parenting children two years and under. (Foster and adoptive moms are welcome, too!) The afternoon will focus on information, resources, products, and more that target the pregnancy and delivery stages of parenting through the first two years. This event will provide a few hours of pampering, light snacks, educational resources, giveaways and swag, shopping, and connecting moms and families with relevant local resources for this season of life.
Several new features will be present at Bloom this year. One of which is our new location and hosting sponsor: ACH Child and Family Services! ACH Child and Family Services is dedicated to protecting children and preserving families. Abuse and neglect are significant problems in local communities, with Tarrant County suffering from the fourth highest number of abused children of any county in Texas. With more than a century of experience, ACH, a Fort Worth-based nonprofit agency, brings needed resources and skills to children and families struggling with life’s challenges. Some of its programs keep children and families together while others provide a healing home for children who can’t live with their families. ACH’s vision is for families to thrive and children to experience safety, hope, and love.
