A Boise Homeless Shelter's Possible Move Raises Questions From Neighbors
Interfaith Sanctuary — a nonprofit homeless shelter for people experiencing homelessness in downtown Boise — is looking to expand its programs with a new facility west of downtown.
Its current location opened in 2008 and can host 140 single men and women overnight. The proposed new facility would be able to host up to 250 people each night, and would allow the shelter to expand other services.
However, this possible move is raising questions and concerns from people who live and work near the proposed location a former Salvation Army food distribution center on West State Street. The possible move is getting so much attention the shelter’s Executive Director, Jodi Peterson Stigers, decided to cancel a neighborhood meeting that was set for Thursday.
