Celebrating The Salvation Army’s 125th anniversary of caring in Idaho
A few months back, our Los Angeles area worship communities and programs celebrated the big 1-2-5 and now The Salvation Army in the Boise, Idaho area is being lauded for their 125 years of caring.
:: The Idaho Statesman newspaper featured The Salvation Army in the Treasure Valley (the area between Vale, Oregon and Boise, Idaho) in a recent story. Click here for a link.
The paper noted that the breadth of The Salvation Army’s service to the community is often a surprise to locals.
Here’s a sampling of what they do to minister to people in need.
:: The Marian Pritchett School, a collaborative effort with the Boise School District, is a high school for pregnant and parenting teen girls.

:: Project Share is funded by Idaho Power and administered by The Salvation Army and helps low income families who qualify heat their homes in the winter.
:: Their emergency family shelters in Boise and Nampa provide a safe place to stay for up to 90 days, nutritious meals, and case management to help residents find employment, manage their finances and secure a permanent home.
:: Family Services offices in Boise, Caldwell and Nampa distribute the essentials of life such as food, clothing, and shelter to people in crisis.
