Boise, ID – The Women’s and Children’s Alliance (WCA) has been awarded a grant of $ 10,000 from the Scentsy Family Foundation to support the WCA’s emergency shelter and transitional home serving women and children fleeing domestic and sexual violence. Last fiscal year alone, the WCA provided 11,132 “safe bed nights” to 182 women and children and 2,643 counseling sessions to 278 new adult and child clients.

The vision of the WCA is a community where individuals thrive in safe, healthy relationships. With the support of our community partners, like the Scentsy Family Foundation, we work toward this vision through a combination of secure shelter, comprehensive programming and tools to empower individuals on their journey to a life free from abuse.

 “The Scentsy Family Foundation’s Direct Giving program makes charitable contributions to family-oriented programs, projects and events that bring people together to work for positive change. The Women’s and Children’s Alliance is a great example of an organization that creates a significant and ongoing benefit to Idaho families,” said Sam Johnson, Scentsy Chief of Staff.

“We are so grateful for support of the Scentsy Family Foundation,” “Home is not always safe for everyone,” said Bev La Chance, WCA Grants Director, “We are expiring a significant increase in requests for services by individuals impacted by domestic violence, compared to the same time last year. We are deeply grateful for the support of those who allow us to provide safety and healing.”

In addition to safe shelter, the WCA offers childcare, counseling, case management, court advocacy, life skills classes, financial education and a variety of other integrated services and programs to women, men and children victimized by abuse.
