Nonprofit Overview

Mission: Fayette Youth Protection Homes (FYPH) offers refuge and support to children who have been the victims of abuse, neglect or other tragic circumstances.

Target demographics: Foster children from babies through age 18 who live within a 50-mile radius of Fayette County, GA.

Programs: At the friday-johnson home, a residential group home located in brooks, georgia, school-age children receive shelter and healing through a structured and homelike environment, comprehensive services, and, most importantly, lots of hugs. The home can accommodate up to 10 children at a time, and these children stay an average of 8 months. Bloom (f/k/a fayette youth protection home) also operates a foster parenting program and recruits, trains, and supports a network of private foster families who take in children of all ages.

the bloom closet (f/k/a gracie's closet) is a much-needed resource center for clothing and other necessities for children living in foster care in the state of georgia. The inventory in the closet is donated by individuals and groups in the community, and everything is in excellent condition. All personal items such as socks and underwear are brand new, and are either donated or purchased through monetary donations. The closet is decorated like a fun store and oozes tlc! Children and their foster parents visit the "store" by appointment. Each child may select a new pack of underwear and socks, a new pair of pajamas, five outfits, toiletries, books, toys, and school supplies. They may visit the closet on a quarterly basis or after a growth spurt, whichever comes first.

bloom is a private non-profit organization which offers refuge and supportive services to children who have been the victim's of abuse or neglect.

Gracie's Closet, which is part of FYPH, serves foster children in the metro Atlanta area. I love helping foster parents select clothing for their children. I would highly recommend Gracie's Closet as a place to volunteer and/or make donations.

Fayette Youth Protection Homes and Gracie's Closet have been a tremendous blessing to our family. We have been a foster family for two infants through Fayette Youth and it has been a wonderful experience. The staff is fabulous to work with and Gracie's Closet has provided most everything we have needed for the babies. We are very thankful for this ministry!

I am a mentor to a foster child as well as a CASA. I was able to bring my teen to Gracie's Closet. "WOW! was I impressed," My teen was so excited. She was assisted by Becky in selecting outfits that were awesome. I have sent other foster parents, but this was my first visit. My teen left with a big smile and a large bag of beautiful outfits. She was so thankful
Gracie's Closet is a blessing to our foster children.
The Setting is comfortable, it frrls like a high end boutique.
Becky seemed to know just what is fashionable, and what the teen will like. I am so thankful to Gracies's closet for making our children in foster care feel special. (After all they are:):)
Thank- you Fayette Youth Protection Homes, INC.
