Marie and Maggie (White)

Honor your mother’s efforts to make the world a better place by adding her name to our list.

Our mission began with mothers volunteering their time.

Every day they volunteered to cook, serve, clean, give their time and energy in a communal effort to build a charity dedicated to alleviating suffering.

Dorothy Day mother's day

Blanchet House was inspired by, Dorothy Day, a mother and woman of radical compassion. Dorothy co-founded the Catholic Worker Movement which developed the concept of Houses of Hospitality.

“It was necessary to embrace poverty and the Works of Mercy, to feed, clothe and shelter people who were in need.”
