Welcome to Idaho Youth Ranch Hays House
Treasure Valley’s only 24/7 shelter for runaway or homeless youth
You Are Not Alone
When hope seems lost, we leave a light on. Hays House is here for kids, ages 9 to17, who are runaways, homeless, victims of abuse or neglect, or just need a safe place to stay
If you, or someone you know, needs a place to stay, then we are here to help - no judgment, no pressure.
We also provide respite care, which means we can help if you might just need a couple of days to take some space from your family. We get it, sometimes you just need a break.
