Fostering Positive Next Steps
Empowering Youth assists youth who age out of the foster care program in Ada County. An extra large duffel bag full of household necessities is provided to help them set up independent living. In addition, a handmade quilt, sewn with care by our volunteers is included with each kit.
Kits are prepared by Assistance League of Boise volunteers and delivered to Idaho Health & Welfare, who distributes the kits at their discretion.

Making A Difference
Assistance League of Boise volunteers purchase supplies from local stores and assemble them together in a basic household kit which is then placed in an extra-large duffel bag for easier transport.
“I joined Assistance League of Boise in January. When it came time to choose committees my heart was touched by the idea of helping 18 year old foster children. The Empowering Youth committee has been a great way to meet new people and to feel like I am making a difference in someone else’s life.”
