At the Women’s and Children’s Alliance (WCA) we provide safety, healing and freedom from domestic abuse and sexual assault. All our services are provided at no charge to those most vulnerable in our community who have suffered the trauma of physical, emotional, sexual or psychological abuse at the hands of someone who many times has professed to love them. Our services include 24 hour hotlines, safe shelter, court advocacy, counseling, case management, licensed childcare and a host of life skills and parenting classes.
The Closet is set up to provide FREE clothing to teens in need. Teens are referred to The Closet by Ada County middle and high school counselors, juvenile corrections, homeless shelters, and word of mouth. The Closet was founded in 2010 by Kelly McMurry and her desire to give back to the community. To date, 3000 teens have shopped at The Closet. Each teen is provided a one-hour private and confidential appointment where they can shop and pick out the clothes they like. The clothing is donated by the community with an increasing number of retailers partnering to provide NEW items.

We serve Canyon County and over 500,000 individuals in the surrounding communities. Through restoring Hope, encouraging Healing and helping those we serve discover their true Strength.
