Crosswalk North Idaho
Keeping Kids Safe
Crosswalk North Idaho (formerly Project Safe Place) is all about helping kids cross safely from instability to stability—whether they are being bullied at school, aren’t getting adequate nutrition at home or are at risk of running away. Crosswalk North Idaho is the first step to help for youth in crisis.

Emergency Shelter: our host home program
When kids face dangerous or difficult situations at home they sometimes feel like running away is their only option. Crosswalk North Idaho offers safe alternatives, keeping kids off the streets and preventing entry into the foster care or juvenile justice systems.
For a family in crisis, giving both parent(s) and child a little space can make all the difference.
Our Host Home program, available 24/7, al¬lows youth to access emergency shelter with a licensed Host Home family for up to 21 days.
During that three-week period, Crosswalk staff members form a “wraparound team” composed of the youth and his/her parent(s), teacher(s), pastor, counselor or anyone in his/ her life that can offer insight and support. The team meets regularly to work through problems, gather resources and develop a plan for working things out at home.
available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week
for help, call 208.676.0772 (if asked to leave a message, clearly state your name, phone number and that you need shelter services.)
