CATCH of Canyon County
16 12th Avenues, Suite 103
Nampa, ID 83651
CATCH of Canyon County was launched in August of 2009, and was the first successful replication of the CATCH model. A variety of community partners came together to establish the program, including the City of Caldwell, City of Nampa, Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, Southwestern Idaho Cooperative Housing Authority (SICHA), Idaho Housing and Finance Association (IHFA), the United Way of Treasure Valley, and several faith-based organizations and local businesses. “This is a true example of how none of us can do it all, but if we work together toward a common goal, we can see incredible results,” said Caldwell Mayor Garrett Nancolas.
Over the years, the Canyon County program has continued to expand to meet the needs of the community. In August 2013, the program moved to its present location in Nampa. Conveniently located on the bus route, the new office provides space for staff and interns, a conference room, a family resource room, playroom and an onsite warehouse for storing donated items. At present, the program has the capacity to serve up to 22 homeless families at a time.
Canyon County families are referred from local shelters including Hope’s Door, The Salvation Army Community Family Shelter, The Lighthouse Rescue Mission, and the Nampa School District.
