Since 1988, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho (RMHC of Idaho) has been keeping families of sick children together – giving them a place to rest and refresh. RMHC of Idaho supports families if ill or injured children through our Idaho Ronald McDonald House® in Boise, Ronald McDonald Family Room® in Idaho Falls, and Happy Wheels Hospitality Carts in Boise and Twin Falls. Research shows that RMHC programs have a direct impact by enabling family-centered care and providing the emotional and physical comfort families need.
Interfaith Sanctuary Shelter’s story has changed quite a bit in the last couple of years. Our shelter began with a simple goal of giving our most vulnerable homeless population a safe place to sleep and a warm meal 7 nights a week. In the past several years we have made a deeper commitment to our guests. We continue to provide them with a safe place to sleep and a warm meal nightly but we have also brought an amazing team of case managers into the mix to help bring these guests hope and second chances We are making so much progress because this dedicated team shows up each day prepared to do battle on behalf of our guests. They leave no stone unturned to find solutions to the problems that have been holding our guests back, and they walk alongside them until they have their feet firmly rooted back on the ground. Self- sufficiency for each of our guests is our ultimate goal, but, just like with a new plant, it takes lots of water in the beginning to establish its roots and then, with some patience and support, it can continue to grow and blossom on its own.
Our mission is to reduce victimization with a safety net of crisis services. We achieve this by meeting the medical, legal, safety, education, and basic needs of individuals and families in a warm and welcoming environment. Specifically, we help those affected by domestic violence, sexual violence, child abuse, elder abuse, and stalking.
Our values encapsulate our vision for those that we serve: Hope, healing, justice, safety, and empowerment. The purpose of the Center is to facilitate a coordinated community response to interpersonal violence that improves outcomes and enables victims to access all of the services they need from a single location. This requires robust partnerships with government and community-based agencies. We have 17 community partners. Co-location means our combined efforts reduce the potential that individuals and families in crisis will miss vital resources. It also reduces the number of times that they must retell their story to minimize further trauma. Ultimately, the Center fosters a heightened community vigilance that comes from partners looking for innovations through the same lens; rapid learning that comes from continuous feedback; and an immediacy of action from a unified and simultaneous response.
The Arc is committed to securing the opportunity to choose and realize their goals of where and how to learn, live, work and play for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Each individual and family served has access to the information, advocacy and skills they need to participate as active citizens of our democracy and active members of their community. We work to ensure that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their family have the support they need to live an ordinary and decent life.
Mission43 is a partnership of the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Family Foundation and three premier veterans organizations designed to give currently serving military, former military, and military spouses in Idaho, the 43rd state, the resources for a successful transition after leaving the service. By bringing together these world-class organizations, Idaho’s post-9/11 servicemen, women, and their spouses have the resources to excel academically, in their next career, and in the community.

Buster Brown is not your average horse. Besides being just three feet tall, he also provides a valuable service as a therapy horse. He has become a favorite visitor at The Terraces of Boise senior living community.
May 28, 2017
BOISE – A miniature horse has won the hearts of residents at a Boise senior living community, thanks to his special healing power.
When “Buster Brown” visits The Terraces of Boise, smiles abound. At just 36 inches tall with a wild mop of hair on his head, Buster is not your typical horse.
“He can be a little bit of a wild man at home sometimes and when he comes here he just chills and is just so happy to visit with the seniors,” said Elise Daniel, Buster’s owner.
The residents of the community can’t get enough of Buster.
“When Buster comes, he just brightens everybody’s day,” said Debbi Evans, The Terraces’ lifestyle director.
Resident Elaine Baker was excited to meet the special visitor.
“This is the first horse I’ve seen wandering the halls,” she said. “There are some dogs that are almost as big as Buster Brown.”
Elise has owned Buster for 17 years.
“I work with seniors and this is my way of giving back to the senior community, is bringing Buster to visit,” she said. “It’s one of the most wonderful things I do with my time.”
Buster seems to like it too.
“Therapy is really his only job and he really really loves it,” Elise said.
While Buster gets lots of love during his visits to The Terraces, the benefit is mutual.
“Being able to pet an animal is actually proven to lower blood pressure and relax people and make people calmer,” Elise said.
