WE CAN HELP: Avenues for Hope Housing Challenge

Challenging Idaho Communities to Help Bring Families off the Street this Winter

Many are at risk of being left out in the cold this winter.

The Home Partnership Foundation, brought to you by the Idaho Housing and Finance Association (IHFA), is challenging Idahoans to help bring families off the street by donating to a housing-related nonprofit of their choice online through the Avenues for Hope Housing Challenge.

“Because of the economic downturn, the number of people on the brink of homelessness is increasing,” said Gerald Hunter, IHFA president and executive director and Home Partnership Foundation president.  “The Foundation’s work is intended to unite efforts to help enhance funding for housing-related nonprofit partners through donations. If you care about preventing homelessness in your area, this is a great opportunity to help.”


The Challenge will run from Nov. 14 to Dec. 31 and allows donors to select which nonprofit in Idaho to donate to and, by doing so, they increase the chances for the nonprofit of their choice to earn a portion of the $25,000 in challenge grants from the Foundation.
