Roberta Dehman Hershon founded Hope in Bloom after her lifelong friend and fellow gardener died of breast cancer in 2005. The organization designs and installs indoor and outdoor gardens at the homes of Massachusetts residents who are undergoing treatment for breast cancer. With gardens tailored to each individual's living space and lifestyle, they serve as tranquil sanctuaries and have helped improve the quality of life for women and men with breast cancer and their families during what is often a stressful time.

The dining room at Rosie's Place serves lunch and dinner seven days a week to roughly 150 women and children per meal. Each meal is prepared to meet a set of nutritional standards—incorporating fruit, vegetables, and other low-sodium, low-fat ingredients—to ensure healthy eating and avoid neglecting the women's dietary needs. All diners take a seat in a communal, restaurant-style setting and are served their meals in accordance with the organization's twin commitments to treating their guests with dignity and promoting a sense of community. Annually, Rosie's Place serves 74,000 nutritionally balanced meals to dining-room guests.
