Home prices in Boise continue to soar, pricing many buyers out of the market. Simultaneously, city leaders are concerned about an increase in family homelessness, and have set a goal of eliminating family homelessness in five years. How will they get there?

Two people trying to meet this goal are Sara Busick and Jeanette Curtis of ‘Our Path Home,’ a public-private partnership with the city that focuses on getting people housed.
