From the Staff: Seen as an Individual

We seek to be a safe and a stable place where women and children can  heal from the hurts that have left them vulnerable. No matter if they are staying on a night by night basis or participating in the New Life Program, we look at each person as an individual. Recognizing that safety and security are ultimately found in Jesus, we present Him as the solution to their pain while accepting them wherever they are in their journey.

City Light Home for Women & Children is a ministry of Boise Rescue Mission Ministries. Located in Boise, ID on W. Jefferson St., this shelter serves homeless women and children across the Treasure Valley area.
