Our Path Home, the public-private partnership working to end homelessness in Ada County, in collaboration with local partners, opened a temporary winter warm up day shelter for community members experiencing homelessness.
The warm up day shelter, located at 511 S. Americana Boulevard in downtown Boise, is open now through March 31, 2022 from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. seven (7) days a week. Hot beverages will be provided.
To ensure the safety of everyone, including those entering the warm up day shelter and staff, people will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms upon entry. Face masks are required for everyone over the age of two, if someone does not have a face mask, one will be provided. For those who need it, transportation will be made available to access COVID-19 testing, vaccination, or other healthcare needs.
The day shelter will keep our most vulnerable community members warm and safe through the cold winter months. By providing additional congregate space to better physical distance during the ongoing community spread of COVID-19, the warm up day shelter enables Our Path Home to better serve this population, including families.
Residents interested in supporting the nonprofits operating the winter warm up day shelter and our community’s housing nonprofits can donate through Avenues for Hope, now through December 31, 2021.
