Safe Passage is one of the largest victim services agencies in the state, routinely providing support to more than 1000 adults and children a year from the 5 northern counties. Known more commonly as The Women’s Center, we have been providing free and confidential services to community survivors of domestic and sexual violence of the past 40 years.We have a number of programs that we could direct funds to but our prevention and outreach programs would be the beneficiary of this promotion. Safe Passage exists to promote safety, education and empowerment to victims of domestic and sexual violence.
Safe Passage helps all survivors of domestic and sexual violence, including children. We offer a safe shelter, counseling, court advocacy and more. Our services are free and confidential. We can provide food, clothing, shelter, gas cards but most importantly we provide HOPE to people whose partners have told them they are not worthy. Safe Passage not only helps survivors, we work toward reducing violence through prevention education. We provide individual and group programs that teach ways to recognize domestic violence and how to safely intervene and help to local middle and high schools, as well as other community locations.
iDFY (Idaho Drug Free Youth) believes all youth deserve a space to feel connected, supported, and empowered to lead happy and healthy lives. When teens belong to our positive program, they are part of a network who enthusiastically embraces a substance free lifestyle. We are invested in developing young leaders, building relationships, and providing accessible programs for students and schools.
iDFY takes a universal and diverse approach to drug prevention seeking to impact high and low risk students, students from rural and urban communities, and students ranging in ages 12-18 years old. Our dynamic programming meets the needs of our diverse audience of students. By enhancing school connectedness and improving the social environment Idaho youth learn and grow in, we aim to promote knowledgeable decisions and substance free choices.
Boys & Girls Club of Kootenai County
Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.
We are an after school and summer youth development agency with locations in Post Falls and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. We keep membership fees low at only $20 for the entire school year or $20 for the entire summer, so we can help as many kids in our community as possible. Since our membership fees are so minimal, we rely on community support to sustain our programs and provide youth with a great experience.
Our organization would use the funds to help support our summer programs. We have a constant need for new equipment and supplies. This summer we have over 1,000 children and teens registered at our facilities, and $500 would be a huge help in achieving our mission.
ICARE – a Program of St. Vincent de Paul
ICARE a program of St. Vincent de Paul is a non-profit, child abuse prevention agency serving Kootenai & Shoshone and Benewah Counties. As a strength based model, we offer free individualized home visit services, parenting classes and child sexual abuse prevention workshops in Kootenai, Shoshone & Benewah Counties. ICARE partners with parents to build stronger families. Our goal is to reduce the risk factors that increasingly challenge families today and offer strategies for strengthening families in need of extra support.
The overall impact of home visits is to reduce the incidence of child abuse and neglect. As a result, a new generation of children will grow up in nurturing homes with parents who care for them in appropriate ways. Parents will demonstrate improved knowledge of child development, improved knowledge of parenting skills, increase social connections, demonstrate age-appropriate expectations of their children and increase their knowledge of concrete supports. Children will increase their ability to interact positively with others, communicate motions effectively, show empathy and manage their behavior.
When parents repeatedly expose children to positive guidance, children have an increased chance to become caring and nurturing caregivers themselves. Kids that receive the necessary education, care & attention help ensure healthier adults, successful citizens & safer communities.
Healthy families mean healthy children. Healthy communities mean a thriving economy and strong nation!
