CATCH of Ada County was officially launched in January 2012, and receives steady partnership from several local congregations of faith, and area businesses. CATCH, Inc. founder and director, Greg Morris, developed and implemented the original CATCH pilot program in 2006 while working for the City of Boise. Under Greg’s leadership from 2006-2011, the program grew and received national recognition for its innovation.
CATCH, Inc. was established in 2010 to support staff and programming in both the Boise and Canyon County programs. On September 1st, 2011, CATCH, Inc. purchased its current facility at 503 Americana in Boise to keep pace with the growth and capacity of the program, as well as maximize efficiency. With over 2000 square feet of warehouse, CATCH of Ada County staff and volunteers are able to manage (onsite) all furniture and household donations for participating families. Shortly after the building acquisition, CATCH, Inc. separated its mission from the City of Boise and remains an independent re-housing agency. CATCH of Ada County represents the programmatic efforts of CATCH, Inc. in Boise and Meridian. CATCH employs a case manager at the Meridian School District offices to work with Meridian families.
All local, emergency homeless shelters refer families to CATCH of Ada County, including the Salvation Army Family Shelter, WCA, Interfaith Sanctuary, Boise Rescue Mission, and the City Light Home for Women and Children. Additionally, the Joint (Meridian) School District and Boise School District refer families they have identified as homeless.
