For 25 years, The Valley House has been helping those in need in the Magic Valley. The Valley House is a Homeless Shelter with the capacity to help up to 35 families at a time. They have common areas, beds, and small apartments available at it’s two current locations.
However, those in need in Twin Falls are in luck, as the Valley House is expanding! Construction is almost complete on the newest addition to the Valley House, Sharon’s Place is set to open soon!
Plant Therapy sent a team of helpers over to put a little #PlantingKindess love into this new space for our April volunteer day! Our PT Team sent volunteers in full force to help add paint and elbow grease to ensure the new space is ready for future tenants. We cleaned, organized, and even made a few food bags for visitors that reach out to the Valley House needing a meal or two.
The Valley house hands out approximately 350 food bags per month, so our assembling and bagging skills were a welcomed sight. You may not know that the Valley House is 100% community funded! This means they get zero government assistance or funds and rely solely on volunteers and donations.
Last year, with help from members of the Magic Valley, the Valley House was able to help over 5,000 homeless individuals, of which, over 2500 were children. Plant Therapy was so excited to take some time and help this amazing place get ready for Sharon’s Place’s open house.
We look forward to more Planting Kindness events at The Valley House and hope to return often to work with Executive Director, Sharon, and her amazing team. We hope you enjoy taking a glimpse into the day we had giving back and enjoying a day away from the office with our team.
