Serving Those Who Served for Us

El-Ada offers two primary programs for Veterans: SSVF & GPD.

 

Both programs provide a range of supportive services designed to promote housing stability for eligible very low-income Veteran families. 

Tackling the Issue

El-Ada helps any community member who is income eligible with their utility bills including water and your main heat source. Call us today at (208) 322-1242.

Making a Difference

El-Ada receives donations through our partner stores and the Idaho Foodbank. Community members are also invited to donate to our pantries. Read more about what we need here

Working with Our Partners

The Coordinated Housing Options and Individualized Services (CHOIS) program provides rental assistance and case management services to homeless and disabled individuals and families.

 

The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and operated by the Ada County Housing Authority and El-Ada. Participants pay 30% of their income towards rent and utilities and receive on-going supportive services. To be eligible, you must be literally homeless, i.e. be living on the streets or in an emergency shelter, and you must have a disability. Applicants for the CHOIS program must be referred to the program through Ada County’s Coordinated Entry System, otherwise known as “Our Path Home.” 

HELP Class

We are not currently accepting applications for this program.

This five-section course includes information on the current housing market, tenant/landlord rights, money management, conflict resolution, and home maintenance. It empowers renters to advocate for themselves and maintain housing stability.
