The Treasure Valley is currently in the middle of a heatwave with temperatures hovering around triple digits throughout this week... and it doesn't seem there's any end to the heat anytime soon.

Taking care of our own

Many of us easily forget that there are those who don't have access to air conditioning. We go about our daily lives and some of us (albeit unintentionally) take A/C for granted. There is still a homeless issue in the Treasure Valley and those without a home have to endure the heat with no place to go.

According to their website, Our Path Home is an organization in Boise that "envisions a system wherein every person experiencing homelessness finds [a] home." They've teamed up with several local agencies to provide a safe (and cool) haven for those who need a break from the grueling heat.

Remember, you could be driving around the Treasure Valley without air conditioning and you too may need a break. With no end in sight for triple-digit weather, let's look at the various spots in the Treasure Valley where you can cool off at.
