SONRISE TRANSITIONAL LIVING

Dear Friends of the Mission,  

I have some exciting news to share with you. Boise Rescue Mission Ministries has entered into an agreement to purchase the vacant Park Place Assisted Living facility at 1777 S. Curtis Road in Boise to increase the number of transitional living units that it operates in the Treasure Valley.

The new facility will be called “Sonrise Transitional Living” to symbolize the dawn for formerly homeless residents seeking a fresh beginning toward independent living. The facility will begin receiving residents sometime after the New Year.

The Rescue Mission has operated its Transitional Living Program for over 20 years. It has been a great success in providing safe, stable, and supportive housing for people in transitioning from homelessness to independent living. Currently, the Mission provides 57 independent living units in Boise and Nampa for transitional living. The new facility will significantly expand the Program with about 80 new living units. The greatest need for new facilities in the Treasure Valley is for this type of supportive, transitional housing, and we are growing our Program to help meet that need.

As you know, Boise Rescue Mission Ministries also operates five emergency shelter facilities that provide a variety of programs and services to people in need (including food, shelter, clothing, job search, and case management), all designed to assist people in recovering from homelessness.

We know that people can recover from homelessness. Because of your support and prayers, we see it every day. Hundreds of homeless and hopeless people come to us every year. From broken lives and broken spirits, we help them get through their crisis. Then, in time, when they are ready to move on, we help them return to a life of housing stability.

For many people, the Transitional Living Program provides a supportive place to live while working toward their own safe and stable housing situation. Sometimes they need to establish a work history, develop a resume, earn money to pay off debts, or clean up their credit history. Whatever they might need, the Transitional Living Program provides the environment to help those people accomplish their goals.

The Mission is seeking donations for the purchase and light renovation of the building and its ongoing operations. We also value your prayers as we start the remodeling and fundraising.

In His Service with you,

Rev. Bill Roscoe
President/CEO
