Idaho Power recently delivered a check to support the Hailey Crisis Hotline’s Latino Mentoring Program. The nonprofit Crisis Hotline has been supporting mental health and social well-being in the Wood River Valley since 1987.
To address heightened community needs during the COVID-19 pandemic, the hotline launched the Neighbors Helping Neighbors program to connect those in need with family care packages and other resources. The Latino Mentoring Program will help expand connections with the Latino community by training bilingual community leaders who can build on this important work.
“Neighbors Helping Neighbors is building resilient communities by leveraging strong partnerships and natural community leaders,” said Angie Miller, Idaho Power energy advisor. “We are so happy to support this effort and the Wood River Valley community.”
