Extreme heat poses risk to Idaho's unhoused

Supplies donated to catch to help those experiencing homelessness in the heat.

Supplies donated to catch to help those experiencing homelessness in the heat.

With an excessive heat warning in place through Saturday, many people are trying to stay out of the sun but for people experiencing homelessness, this can be hard to do.

Which is why the local nonprofit CATCH is requesting essential items to help keep this vulnerable community safe.

Connor O'Hora, CATCH's outreach team lead, and Cassidy Landry, a former client of CATCH, joined Idaho Matters to talk more.
