Our Path Home Provides List of Cooling Spaces for Residents

July 14, 2023

Given the extreme heat, Our Path Home has coordinated cooling locations in the community that provide a cool daytime space. Our Path Home, the public-private partnership, has collaborated with local partners, to include the City of Boise, Interfaith Sanctuary, Corpus Christi House, Cathedral of the Rockies and the Treasure Valley Family YMCA to ensure that vulnerable people will have a place to recover from the intense heat.

These cooling locations will provide a place for people experiencing homelessness, and others who need to access them, reprieve during the hottest times in our community. This weekend, during regular business hours, residents will be able to get relief from the heat at the YMCA, Interfaith, Corpus Christi and City Libraries. More information on cooling resources for the rest of the summer will be made available next week.

Our Path Home partners are working diligently to ensure residents experiencing homelessness have the resources needed to be safe this summer. The team welcomes needed items, including reusable water bottles, bottled water, sports drinks, hats, sunscreen, and cooling rags. Donations can be delivered to Interfaith, Corpus Christi, CATCH or Idaho Harm Reduction Project. Interested residents can also email info@ourpathhome.org
