Boise Corps Building Futures Campaign
The Salvation Army is committed to serving the whole person, body, mind and spirit, with integrity and respect.
The Salvation Army has a plan to create a new, modern campus that will allow the organization to continue to serve people in Ada County for decades. The first phase of the project will be to construct a 44,500 square-foot multipurpose building to house our school program for pregnant and parenting teens, child care center, auditorium/chapel, gymnasium, commercial kitchen/cafeteria, and administrative offices as well as develop multipurpose athletic fields.
The new campus will more than double the capacity of the one-of-a-kind School Program for Pregnant and Parenting Teens to 125 students, and expand the types of support the Army provides to enrolled students and their children. It will also provide a Community Center for an underserved neighborhood in West Boise offering education, recreation, arts, social, and spiritual programs for youth, adults and seniors.
The new campus will increase TSA?s total capacity for case management and assistance programs allowing more people seeking social services assistance to more efficiently and effectively get the help and acquire the skills they need to live self sufficiently. Initial conservative estimates show that with the school and community center there will be 88,000 visits to the new campus in the first year alone.

The Salvation Army operates its social services programs and the Booth Marian Pritchett School Program at capacity in inefficient and/or deteriorating buildings. Existing facilities cannot be cost effectively expanded or repurposed to allow the organization to respond to the demand for all our programs and services at one site.
The most urgent need is to replace the 87-year-old former maternity hospital building that houses the school. The old, deteriorating building is unsafe, too small, and has outlived is structural life. A separate building utilized for the childcare center operates at capacity and cannot accommodate preschool age children. Lack of access to affordable childcare is the greatest barrier to teen girls staying in school until graduation. These multiple barriers limit The Salvation Army?s ability to help all the girls and their children who would benefit from the school program.
Since 1921, The Salvation Army has helped pregnant and parenting girls by providing social services support and education so that they can stay in school and are prepared for for college, work, and the responsibilities of parenthood.
Our students study the same curriculum as other Boise School District secondary schools and earn their diplomas from Frank Church High School.
