programs & shelter for homeless women & children in boise, Nampa & the surrounding areas

Since 2000, the loving and supportive staff at Boise Rescue Mission Ministries has provided help for homeless women and women with children across the Treasure Valley.

We recognize that homeless women in the Treasure Valley face trials that homeless men do not. Particularly single mothers with children. Many women who have found themselves homeless are transitioning from dangerous living situations. At Boise Rescue Mission Ministries are looking for a place to restart their lives.

We are committed to caring for these women through a variety of services catered to their needs and their children. Through overnight shelter, work-search assistance, GED completion, counseling, and addiction recovery, we’ve helped hundreds of women in our community find faith, hope, and family in a safe, nurturing environment.

Through activities, shared meals, clean clothing, and a warm bed being provided, Candice and her daughter have been able to find safety and hope here at City Light Home for Women & Children.

Children and Teen Programs

The Mission helps families in a very practical way by removing their stress about how to care for their children while continuing to work or look for a job. With our help, parents are able to protect their kids while they are taking care of what needs to be done to move their family forward out of homelessness.

The Children and Teens Program is working to break the cycle of homelessness. This is to improve the futures of homeless children in the Treasure Valley through education, counseling, and activities.

Children’s and Teens programs we provide include:

  • Homework club
  • Summer children’s program
  • After-school activities
  • College road trip
