The Bloom Again Foundation, a Pasadena nonprofit organization that provides rapid-response financial assistance for rent to working women living at or near the poverty level when medical challenges stretch their already limited resources, has announced and welcomed its board of directors for 2023.
The volunteer board of directors is composed of women from various backgrounds and is led by Co-Presidents Rosetta Henderson and Carolyn Sims. Other directors include Treasurer Rita Boccuzzi, Secretary Victoire Prothro, and Marisol Barrios Perez.
The organization’s mission is to support economically vulnerable working women when they encounter medical challenges. Women with a medical diagnosis are referred through the collaboration with community partners, providing their clients, patients, and parishioners with the financial support they need while they are receiving treatment or recovering.
“Bloom Again Foundation has always been near and dear to my heart because of our mission. The support we receive from our donors, partnerships, and fundraising events provides the support to make an impact in the lives of these women when they need it the most,” said Co-President Carolyn Sims, who serves as the Senior Manager, Community and Climate Equity at Southern California Edison.
The board of directors bid farewell to Zee Najarian, who recently served as the co-president of the board and volunteered on the board for 10 years.
