Blanchet House has been lending a helping hand to the Portland community since 1952, following a simple mission dedicated to serving those in need.
Blanchet House will always have a focus on feeding the poor, but we are excited to now offer case management services to place an added emphasis on the quality of our guest’s futures.
With frequent donations from various food partners throughout the city, Blanchet is able to consistently provide nearly 1,200 nutritious meals per day.
The origins of Blanchet first started in 1938 at the University of Portland when a group of students organized to form a social and service club focused on serving the poor.
