I want to thank all who have helped make our new Blanchet House building a reality. The generosity of individuals, foundations, companies and the City of Portland was truly amazing and will allow us to continue our mission to feed the hungry, provide shelter and a safe haven for those in need for another 60 years. The number of meals served has increased since our new building opened in October of 2012. In January alone, over 30,000 meals were served at our new facility. "Build it and they will come!" We are grateful for all who have volunteered and provided the hospitality our guests need. We are indeed grateful to all of Portland!
Many thanks,
Rich Ulring and all of the

I've had a chance to work at the Blanchet House a few times through the Hands On Portland website and this place is great. The staff that runs this operation day in and day out is great - they are concerned about the well being of those they serve and ensuring a positive experience for all. I have really enjoyed my time I've spent with them. The shelter is unique in making the individuals feel more like customers than an individual passing through a cafeteria line - this adds to their hospitality status. They bring the food to the client, the beverages are on the table - the client just comes in and gets food - similar to a restaurant style service. Having volunteered at other local shelters, this definitely adds to the organization and efficiency of the meal providing. Kudos to Blanchet!
