There are a lot of local youth that simply need a safe positive place to stay and someone caring. There are children, youth and teens of all ages looking for a temporary home. Idaho Department of Health and Welfare (IDHW) is having such a shortage of available foster families and an influx of more children and youth in need that they had to do something that has never been done before.
It is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that has been working with West Ada School District since 1990. One major program for Assistance League of Boise is Operation School Bell. This provides brand new clothing to K-6 students with the greatest needs.
