Blanchet Farm Needs Funding to Complete Construction and Open Doors to Oregonians in Need


Yamhill County, OR [April 09, 2024] — Blanchet Farm, a one-of-a-kind rural program for addiction recovery, is nearing completion of new facilities to meet the growing need for recovery spaces in Oregon.

With addiction rates soaring across the state, the demand for free and effective recovery services has never been greater. Blanchet Farm, nestled in the countryside of Yamhill Country, has long been a refuge for individuals battling addiction. Founded in 1962 by Blanchet House, the farm offers a hands-on approach by immersing participants in meaningful work with animals and gardens. There’s also a woodshop to learn new skills and express yourself.

Recognizing the urgency of the addiction crisis, Blanchet House embarked on a bold plan to expand the farm’s capacity by constructing a new 24-bed dormitory for men. Once open, the spaces will provide a pathway to overcoming addiction and homelessness that will benefit families, communities, and the state.

However, Blanchet Farm cannot open the doors to the new building until it raises the final $1 million funding to complete construction. The organization is calling upon the generosity of individuals, businesses, and organizations across Oregon to help raise the funds needed to complete construction and support its ongoing programs.

The new farm facility will operate using clean solar energy. Blanchet House was selected by Portland General Electric’s 2022 Renewable Development Fund to receive a grant for a solar energy program at the farm. The Renewable Development Fund, which awards grants for clean energy projects in the community, is fully funded by PGE’s Green FutureSM customers.
