Boise Rescue Mission To Open Canyon County Shelter

Nov 25, 2013

The Boise Rescue Mission has finalized a deal to buy a facility in Nampa to house 60 women and children.

KTVB-TV reports the deal completed Friday will fill a need throughout Canyon County and will be the only shelter of its kind in Nampa.

The new facility will be called the Valley Women and Children's Shelter.

The building used to house the Valley Crisis Center, but that closed several months ago.

Rescue Mission officials say they learned of the chance to buy the building about the same time the organization received a $250,000 donation, the cost of the building.

Rev. Bill Roscoe says the building is well equipped with a good commercial kitchen.
