BOISE — Now that it’s getting colder the city of Boise is helping homeless families stay warm and safe.

The city is opening a day shelter for those who have no place to go during daytime hours.

The program starts Monday, December 3rd and is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily at the Pioneer Neighborhood Community Center on Ash Street in Boise.

We visited the shelter last year when 10 families stopped by on the first day. While it was open, 41 families visited over 3,000 times.

The day shelter has library materials, computers and toys, as well as art and recreation activities provided by Boise Parks and Recreation.

Donations of diapers, socks and other youth supplies are welcome.
