Moving to a new place is always hard. What eases the burden of that transition for most people are friends, neighbors, and the support of a welcoming community. Unfortunately, a lot of that support is lacking when someone moves into our shelter. The WCA does the best we can, but it isn’t the same as freely moving and getting to know a new community on your own terms.
This is why Leadership Boise’s “Sharing Boise” Project is such a beautiful idea. They put together a packet for each shelter client containing a brochure of things to do in Boise that they created, gift cards, coupons, and a heartfelt letter of welcome. We will always remember their kindness, and cannot express how grateful we are for their thoughtfulness.
Thank you Leadership Boise.
