About our new shelter

The Vision

A new Aid For Friends emergency shelter will serve almost 1,000 Southeast Idaho residents experiencing or facing homelessness while helping them access the support resources they need to get back on their feet.

The Need

The existing Aid For Friends facility is the only emergency shelter for women, men, and families in a region that has the state’s second-highest homeless population. It’s in a cramped, single-family home that operates at 114% of capacity most of the year.

The Benefit

The expanded Aid For Friends facility will increase capacity by approximately 150% and offer appropriate living quarters for men, women, and families. Other enhancements include educational and workforce development opportunities.

The Opportunity to Give Hope

You have a unique opportunity to join forces with nonprofits, businesses, and community organizations to help the most vulnerable members of the Pocatello community thrive. Your donation will be used to help renovate a newly acquired space for Aid For Friends that will provide critical shelter and enhanced resources for low-income and homeless families in Southeast Idaho.

The Current Partners and Donors

We appreciate the support and financial contributions from these organizations, as well as individual donors, who recognize the importance of supporting a new Pocatello shelter.
