Boise Council Will Consider Funds for Interfaith Sanctuary

Posted By on Sat, Mar 26, 2011 at 10:35 AM

The Boise City Council will take a resolution next week designed to funnel a community development block grant funding to Interfaith Sanctuary, the Treasure Valley homeless shelter that has been running at or near capacity since opening its doors in 2007.

On any given night, an average of 126 men, women and children make their way to the River Street shelter.

In the past 60 days, more than $10,000 has been earmarked from the Home Partnership Program for major capital improvements to the shelter, including a new HVAC system and restroom and shower upgrades.

While the failing economy pushed more people into the shelter, the same downturn was blamed for a $6,000 drop in unsolicited donations to Interfaith Sanctuary last year.
