Edith I. Blodgett
“Ever since D.A. Blodgett - St. John’s was founded, it has helped children; first in the orphanage and then by placing children in foster and adoptive homes in the community."

"Their mission and focus is serving children who are abused, neglected, or in need of positive adult mentors; children whose parents suffer from addictions, are young with no parenting skills, or who are incarcerated. I feel deeply moved to help children from our community who live in emotionally unstable and unsafe environments. D.A. Blodgett - St. John’s can provide them with loving and healing support. It is my honor to continue providing support to this wonderful Agency that was founded by my late husband, John W. Blodgett’s family in 1887. They play a vital role in the lives of children.”
