Idaho Women’s Shelter Could Close

NAMPA, Idaho (AP) — Officials with the only domestic violence shelter in the southwestern Idaho city of Nampa say the shelter may close because of financial woes. Program Services Director Charlene Wright told the Idaho Press-Tribune that if Valley Crisis Center doesn’t get an infusion of cash soon it could close by the end of October. Wright says the shelter has had trouble paying staffers and paying rent for transitional housing, and the program needs at least $50,000 to keep afloat. The shelter has operated for 30 years and normally houses about 25 women and children. The Idaho Council on Domestic Violence and Victim Assistance suspended its $134,000 grant to the shelter earlier this year after undetailed allegations were made against the Nampa organization. The council refused to provide details of the allegations.
