Raising the House was established in memory of Blaine R. House, beloved father, school teacher, mentor, and friend.
Blaine taught and coached football with the Palmerton Area School District for almost 30 years before passing away in 2013. A man full of life and love, Blaine lived his life with the goal of exiting this world better than he entered it. He dedicated his time and energy to inspiring, supporting, and encouraging his family, students, and community.
As a way to honor his memory and continue his passion, Raising the House was established.
His continuous joking and contagious smile are greatly missed!
Raising the House is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the mission to provide students and their families within the Palmerton community with a variety of programs and assistance while honoring the memory of Blaine R. House.
