The IRC in Boise has been working around the clock to welcome new families from Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Somalia, and other countries.

Here are three ways YOU can help arriving families build a strong start in Idaho.

1. The gift of choice 

Gift cards are the gifts that keep on giving.

They allow families the gift of choice to choose what to purchase so they can get items that suit their top needs and best fit their family.

2. Support our Avenues for Hope Challenge

Avenues for Hope, a yearly challenge to support housing needs in Idaho, runs December 9th through December 31st.

3. Donate to the IRC in Boise

Donations to the IRC in Boise help ensure we can provide the services needed to welcome families, including job skills and employment search, setting up housing, providing cultural orientation classes, and much more. 

Donate here to make sure our new neighbors can have a strong start in Idaho.
