Welcoming City

The City of Boise is committed to creating a community where all our residents feel welcomed, safe and given the opportunity flourish. In 2019, the City of Boise became a certified welcoming city by Welcoming America, reflecting the city’s long-standing work to help immigrants and refugees become members of our community.

Welcoming Afghan Refugees

The City of Boise has a longstanding history of welcoming refugees. We remain committed to providing support to those who are seeking refuge, their families, the Neighbors United Network, and the refugee resettlement agencies providing direct relief to new arrivals. In the next year (October 2021 – September 2022), the City of Boise will be resettling Afghan refugees. The Neighbors United Network hosted a virtual community panel to share Idaho’s role in resettling allies and families from Afghanistan.
