We believe flowers bloom where they find room. We apply the same idea to every part of our business. We strive to guide everyone, especially those with disabilities, to build the best life possible, through connection, community, networking, and support, and we think outside the box to make that happen.
Blooms, LLC is an agency of trained Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) based in the Portland metro and surrounding counties, in Oregon. Members of our leadership team have been working with the Intellectual and Developmental Disability (ID/DD) community since 1998, and our staff of fantastic skills trainers, community inclusion specialists and supported employment specialists have varied backgrounds in education, caregiving, mentorship, and the arts.
We maintain our strong values of reliability, empowerment, creativity, and integrity in all the work we do in the community and with our clients. Our team strives to ensure that every client we work with is seen as a valued individual, and feels that way as a result!
Blooms began with Erin and Juli deciding to team up to provide an agency with well-trained staff. Their goal? To develop a strong agency built on their joint values of integrity, connections, networking, partnering with other agencies, developing a sense of community, and out of the box solutions and special events within the IDD community that are client-centric.
We encourage clients to take an active role with events and everyday happenings. We hire staff and work with clients who may not fit inside the box. And we like that! With our value for individuality and support for the passionate side of life (some know and some are introduced to these passions), Blooms makes a positive impact in our clients’ lives!
Simply put, we value each individual and their positive contributions to the world.
