Our Purpose

Gifts that Give Back! 

Benevolent Baskets is a social enterprise and workforce development program providing job experience and business skills to Marian House women as they produce and sell gift baskets. The program provides an important stepping stone as the ladies strive to enter/reenter the work world. 

Every purchase you make supports their journey and the larger Marian House mission!


In July of 2021, Marian House took over the previous Benevolent Baskets program that was previously operated as a separate nonprofit organization looking to dissolve. Four "Senior Basket Builders," as we now call them, moved with the existing product inventory to the Marian House headquarters at 949 Gorsuch Ave.


We are currently in the process of making it our own as a part of the larger Marian House program model. The program is now also serving women in the Marian House I, Transitional Supportive Housing, Program as they exit Job Readiness.
