This photo was taken celebration of life for Debi Davis, a guest at the Interfaith Sanctuary Shelter. She passed away from the Delta variant earlier this year.

Idaho’s current COVID-19 surge driven by the delta variant and low vaccinations has been deadly for our homeless population. These folks are some of the most vulnerable to the virus in our community — so getting them vaccinated and protected is a top priority.

Idaho Matters is joined by Jodi Peterson, the Executive Director of Interfaith Sanctuary in Boise.
