Salvation Army

The Booth Marian Pritchett School has a 96-year history in Boise. Its goal is keeping pregnant girls and parenting teens in school, but their infrastructure needed an upgrade. After years of fundraising, the new school will open as part of the Salvation Army's updated community center. Idaho Matters speaks to the organization about how the new school will keep young parents educated.

The Salvation Army is most visibly known for its bell ringers who stand outside of grocery stores during the holiday season. They have also dabbled in the thrift store business, but the last of the group's stores in Boise will close its doors in the coming weeks.
