Overview

Charitable Assistance to Community’s Homeless, Inc. (CATCH) is an agency that blends resources from regional government, area congregations of faith, local businesses, and charitable organizations to provide families with the support they need to quickly exit homelessness and achieve stable housing and employment, using a rapid re-housing model. The program currently operates in two communities in Southwest Idaho. A new partnership between CATCH and the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare (IDHW), the state agency responsible for administering the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program, will allow CATCH to offer rapid re-housing assistance to homeless families statewide.
