Project Neighborly

June 8–July 8, 2022

 

The costs associated with moving into a new home can add up quickly, particularly for those on a very limited budget. By providing a Welcome Home Kit, stocked with essentials like kitchen tools, cleaning supplies, and toiletries, you ensure that our neighbors start the next chapter of their lives with greater confidence that they have the basic items to get them started.

Women United

Women United of Southeastern Idaho supports programs that provide critical services for local women and families transitioning from homelessness to safe and stable housing. 

Through help from a grant given to Women United by the Idaho Community Foundation, our goal is to provide 100 kits to local families filled with all the essential items to get started in a new home.
