The Boise Housing Corporation is a 501C3 non-profit corporation governed by a board of directors consisting of members of the architectural, development, and financial community, in conjunction with a representative of Boise City, and other public agencies, many of which have served on the Boise City Mayor’s Affordable Housing Task Force. The Affordable Housing Task Force was formed in 1993 to investigate alternatives and encourage the development of affordable housing projects in Boise, Idaho. Based on recommendations of the Task Force, Boise Housing Corporation made a commitment to develop innovative, high quality, affordable housing communities, including mixed use projects.

Boise Housing Corporation has developed or rehabilitated many projects in Idaho and Oregon and has received national recognition for its innovative public/private partnerships. The awards include: Good Works Award for Small Business, The Vision 2000 Award of Excellence in the area of Community and Economic Development by the U.S. Small Business Administration, and the State, Regional and National Corporate Award by the National Head Start Association for 2001 and 2002.

Boise Housing Corporation continues to pursue creative and innovative ways to produce high-quality affordable mixed-use projects, and ways to preserve and enhance existing affordable housing resources throughout the Northwest. They currently own or manage 40 some projects and are looking at properties that can use their assistance.

Our goal at Helping Hearts & Hands is to be available to the people in Gooding County, Idaho, to provide assistance with needs beyond their financial ability. Our primary function since opening our doors on February 28, 2007 as a 501 (c) 3 non-profit is as a Food Pantry. We work with local schools to provide food for a weekend backpack program for students who are food insecure, and this program continues year round. We operate a Coats for Kids and Adults program. We have a small budget for assistance. We feel that any person in need of assistance within the County should be able to reach out for help, and we want to be there. We try to have resources available for emergency assistance for basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, and medical care. Our help is short term, to assist people until they can secure help from other resources or become self-sufficient. Many of the people we assist are employed, but statistics show their income is not enough to meet basic needs.
