HouseCheck Foundation's Annual Gala is Nov. 1!

HouseCheck’s Annual Boise Gala Benefiting Victims of Domestic Abuse
Set for November 1.

Domestic Abuse is a complex subject that is often overlooked in modern society because many victims don’t – or can’t – reveal the problem to others, usually out of fear of reprisal.

The insidious “secretive’ nature of domestic abuse makes it difficult to gather accurate statistics, but the Family Violence Prevention Fund estimates that between 1.5 million and 3.9 million women are physically abused every year in the U.S. alone. In the last National Census, Domestic Violence Services reported that 67,646 victims were served by various domestic violence programs in the U.S. in a single day.

Domestic abuse impacts men, women, and children of all ages, income levels, and educational backgrounds. In addition to physical abuse, these individuals often suffer from various forms of emotional trauma, including depression, anxiety, and social isolation. Abusers routinely see to it that their targets have very limited resources at their disposal, prompting those affected to feel trapped within the abusive environment with no hope of finding a way out.

HouseCheck is committed to helping.

In 2016, a Boise-based start-up company called HouseCheck established a non-profit foundation to help eliminate domestic abuse.

The HouseCheck Corporation is a national home inspection, data, and real estate technology company whose philosophy is to protect the value, health, and safety of the home and those within it. This philosophy led the founder of HouseCheck Corporation to establish the HouseCheck Foundation as a social service agency partner within local communities to help stop the cycle of domestic abuse.

The foundation’s mission, using a grassroots approach, is to develop a collaborative and robust integrated system of protective and preventive services that assist all individuals affected by abuse within the household. To accomplish this, the HouseCheck Foundation raises and grants funds for local groups and organizations that have a proven track record of helping individuals and families impacted by domestic abuse.

Boise fundraising gala on November 1, 2019.

The HouseCheck Foundation’s Boise Chapter will host its annual gala on November 1, 2019, at the Galaxy Events Center in Meridian, Idaho.  Festivities will include speakers, live and silent auctions, testimonies from those who have escaped the trap of domestic abuse, a delightful dinner, and much more.

Enrollment Fair for Families Moving into West Ada School District

West Ada Enrollment Fair

Families moving into West Ada School District have the unique opportunity of enrolling their children in school on July 24 and 25 when the district hosts its second annual summer enrollment fair. These exclusive days offer families face time with instruction and care team providers as well as the ability to take care of registration paperwork for all of their children in one convenient location.

“Whether a family has one or multiple children in our schools, trekking all over our community during summer break, and potentially in the middle of a home move, is not ideal. This event streamlines the enrollment process for our new families and provides staff dedicated time for assisting them as they settle in,” Staci Low, summer enrollment fair organizer and director of career and technical education explained.

Families should dig out a few pieces of paperwork from their moving boxes in preparation for the event, including:

  • Original/official birth certificate or passport
  • Hard copy of immunization record with proof of required immunizations
  • Proof of address (such as current power, gas or city utilities bill, or housing contract)
  • Incoming grades 7-9 bring last report card
  • Incoming grades 10-12 bring an unofficial transcript
  • Copy of IEP/504, if applicable
  • Copy of legal custodial paperwork, if applicable

“Our school nurses, transportation and nutrition teams are available for taking information and answering questions,” Low shared. “Families may also set up their child’s learning and care plans with federal programs and special services staff, and secondary school counselors are available for preparing student schedules.”

More than 800 students enrolled in West Ada School District during the one-day event last summer. School leaders expect similar attendance at this year’s event – now split over two days and in the district’s main office and training center.

The West Ada School District training center is located at 1303 E. Central Dr. Meridian, Idaho 83642. For families new to West Ada unable to attend this enrollment fair, please call your children’s schools for information on summer office hours.
