Avenues for Hope to benefit St. Vincent de Paul North Idaho

| December 11, 2020 1:00 AM

The 10th annual Avenues for Hope campaign kicked off Thursday to help 80 nonprofits that provide housing and supportive services to Idahoans in need.

The 21-day online fundraising campaign, put together by The Home Partnership Foundation and Idaho Housing and Finance Association, helps chronically and temporarily homeless, domestic violence survivors, veterans, people with disabilities, vulnerable youth, seniors, and low-income Idahoans.

Since 2011, Avenues for Hope has raised nearly $4.4 million. The 2020 campaign has a goal to raise $1.5 million.

“The COVID-19 pandemic is putting an enormous strain on far too many Idahoans who are struggling to keep a roof over their heads,” said Gerald Hunter, president of Idaho Housing and Finance Association. “The money we raise this year will help participating nonprofits maintain and expand their housing and homelessness prevention services during this time of crisis.”

Through Dec. 31, donors can direct their tax-deductible gifts to one or more participating nonprofits at

Participating nonprofits in North Idaho include Family Promise, Habitat for Humanity and St. Vincent de Paul.
