This wonderful grant will support Hays House, Idaho Youth Ranch’s short-term residential facility in Boise. Hays House is the Treasure Valley’s only 24/7 shelter for homeless and runaway teens. Beyond emergency shelter, Hays House also gives kids a safe, supportive, caring, stable place to live while we help them find their way forward. Their support services include life-skills classes, strength-based family and individual counseling from a master’s level clinician, structured education, and community-based recreation. Hays House also provides access to an accredited academic program for grades 9 to 12 that includes GED instruction and testing. This grant from The CarMax Foundation will help us further our efforts!

The CarMax Foundation also supports Idaho Youth Ranch through our volunteer program. They strive to support high-quality programs in the areas of education, youth leadership, and children’s healthy living. Learn more about The CarMax Foundation now.

Thank You, CarMax Foundation!
