It was the controversy heard around the City of Boise...for over 18-months. Interfaith Sanctuary was hoping to move to a new location and a group normally praised for the amazing work that they do was being shunned. The sanctuary serves our community's less-fortunate and folks near their new location wanted them nowhere near their area, fearing a decrease in property value and an increase in crime.
After a long battle, Boise City Council voted to approve the permit and move Interfaith Sanctuary to a new, larger location.
