Doug Holloway, Director of Boise Parks & Recreation
 
Doug has been with the City of Boise for 18 years.  He spoke about a city partnership with Interfaith Sanctuary to provide employment opportunities for homeless citizens.  Interfaith Sanctuary helps with selecting & screening candidates who can perform general services for the city.  The program started with 5 people in 2017 & has since employed 59 people, 10 of whom ended up gaining full-time employment elsewhere & 13 who have since found permanent housing.  Learn more about this terrific program by watching this video:
