This 27-unit apartment complex offering health care, mental health counseling and substance abuse treatment opened its doors to our community’s most vulnerable veterans in August 2020. Located at 4203 West State Street, Valor Pointe offers easy access to public transportation, the Boise River Greenbelt and other community amenities.
Valor Pointe follows the philosophy of Housing First, similar to New Path Community Housing. This model emphasizes providing a home to those experiencing homelessness first and then providing wrap around services to help them live healthier lives.
"A key defining characteristic of our veterans is their willingness to put their lives on the line so the rest of us can enjoy the comforts and security of home."
