Supportive Housing - Our Facilities

We currently have two residential sites in the Sandpoint area.

Our Blue Haven complex in Sandpoint consists of two adjacent residences, one owned and one leased, consisting of nine units with the capacity to house up to 14 adults and 18 children, including single parents and families.

The Trestle Creek facility, just outside of Sandpoint in Hope, Idaho, provides 4 single family homes and a fifth residence with four units for single women known as The Holland House. Women in the Holland House each have their own bedroom and bathroom and share a comfortable, spacious common area and kitchen. All of our Trestle Creek homes were funded by grants through Idaho Housing and Finance Association and were built by the combined efforts of AmeriCorps and Young Community Builders. The five acre parcel of land was provided by donation for use as transitional housing.

Our Programs

Our housing programs include assisting individuals and families with case management, food, clothing, medical assistance, transportation, counseling and skills classes such as budgeting, employment, parenting and nutrition. We also provide resource and referral information with our collaborative partners within the community and throughout the region. 

Community Resource Guide

The Community Resource Guide is a comprehensive list of services available in Bonner County ranging from clothing, food, housing, health care, legal services to veteran services and more.

Additional Housing Options

In addition to the supportive housing program, there are other sources that may be helpful for finding rental units and/or home-buying.

Legal Assistance Resource Connection (LARC)

Supportive Housing Manager Tamie Martinsen has been working with the Idaho Volunteer Lawyer Program to establish Bonner and Boundary county’s first Legal Assistance Resource Connection (LARC).

This new community asset will allow community members to have free access to local attorneys who will provide guidance and assistance in navigating the courts system. It will also assist community members in deciding whether or not their legal issue suggests hiring an attorney or whether they can handle the issue themselves with minimal assistance.

A $5 refundable deposit reserves a 20-minute appointment. Appointments will be held twice monthly from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month.
Appointments will take place at the United Methodist Church located at Boyer and Cedar Street, near downtown Sandpoint.

Further information is available by calling 265-2952 or email
