Reviews for Blanchet House Of Hospitality
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!
