BLANCHET HOUSE OF HOSPITALITY
November 26, 2012

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!

Transition Projects, Inc.
November 6, 2012

This nonprofit is a great asset to the city of Portland. I'm an active volunteer in the men's housing shelter located under the Hawthorne Bridge. The staff is always accessible and open to services that the community is willing/able to provide to the residents at the center. I definitely think that the individuals involved in the program are given great opportunities to better themselves and their lives. I enjoy working with them and supporting them the best way that I can.
