The Boise Rescue Mission has received a $100,000 grant from a northwest charitable trust.

The Mission said Monday that it received the donation from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust.

"This extraordinary grant continues the blessing at a most important point in time," said Rev. Bill Roscoe, president and CEO. "As the only shelter in the community with the capacity and ability to provide isolation to homeless people with COVID-19 symptoms, the Mission is serving over 320 people from the homeless community. This grant will help us continue to serve anyone who comes to us for help."

The shelter says it will use the funds to provide shelter, meals, food boxes, job search assistance and addiction recovery programs.
