Welcome to Idaho Youth Ranch Hays House
Take a virtual tour:
Whether you need a place to crash, a meal, a hot shower, or just a place to catch your breath, Idaho Youth Ranch Hays House is here for you. We work with young people, ages 9 to 17, to provide a safe space.
We are the Treasure Valley’s only 24/7 shelter for runaway or homeless youth, but we’re also a lot more than that. If you, or someone you know, needs a place to stay, then we are here to help - no judgment, no pressure.
Even if you don’t want to come to stay the night, drop-in services are also available if you just want to stop by for a free hot meal, shower, do your laundry, or just relax in a safe space - no strings attached.
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.
We’ve got cozy beds, fun things to do (arcade games, awesome outings, and great food), plus we have a very lovable dog (Meet Bear the Therapy Dog).
