A Letter from the Director:

    We know that these are uncertain times, and we understand that with this it can cause fear and anxiety, especially for the disability community. First and foremost, we want our communities to know that we are still hard at work for you. If you are feeling isolated please reach out to us at 208-380-1401 or 208-308-1997 and an Independent Living Specialist will be happy to talk to you, even if all you need is to hear a voice at the other end.

   On our website at IDLIFE.ORG, under the resource tab, we have added many resources specifically related to COVID-19. If you know of a resource that would be good to add, please email us and we will be sure to add it.

   If you require assistance accessing food, medical supplies, medication or other necessities please email or call us and we will work with you to ensure your issues are resolved. We are working hard, with our community partners to ensure that we are able to provide home delivery for these things. Please use our contact information at the end of this page.

   During these times, I have been so impressed and inspired by communities and community partners coming together to take care of and help our most vulnerable neighbors. In Idaho, we have heard stories of Fire Departments doing grocery shopping, teachers doing reading time for their students, schools providing lunches, Senior Centers continuing to provide meals. Things like Barry’s Bike & Ski handing out free potatoes and so much more. These stories and actions give us hope for a better tomorrow and show us that during the hard times, we truly band together to take care of our Idahoans.  We would like to start featuring positive stories on our Facebook page, so if you would like to recognize an organization or a person in your community please email us and we will put the story on our Facebook page.

   We are going to create an email list, to keep in touch with our community if that is the preferred method of communication and we will send agency updates, positive stories, resources and some ideas of what to do during isolation. If you are interested in joining our email list, please email or call and we will add you to the list. Please let us know what county you are in, so we can provide localized resources in your area.
