Boise Day Shelter Opens For Families As Cold Sets In

Dec 5, 2017

The City of Boise has reopened the day shelter at the Pioneer Neighborhood Community Center on the south end of downtown for its ninth year. Boise Parks and Recreation manages the shelter, which is open 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., seven days a week until April 1.

Kids who come to the shelter will have books, games, art supplies and toys to keep them occupied, and they can expect lunch daily, too. The day shelter program served 29 homeless families last year with referrals from overnight shelters across the Treasure Valley.

The program is looking for donations of baby supplies and new toys.
