Who We Are
Our mission at Bloom For Catholic Women is to provide healing for women that have been impacted by their husband's pornography use and/or addiction. Bloom For Catholic Women provides therapeutic and spiritual online courses for women healing from the trauma of their husband's pornography use.
Through the partnership between Bloom and Integrity Restored, we're dedicated to helping women gain understanding of their husband's addiction, the resulting trauma, and provide tools and education that will guide them to a path of healing and recovery from a truly Catholic perspective.
