Hope’s Door Shelter
In 2003, Hope’s Door Shelter began as a response to the horrific murder of Angie Leon at the hands of her abusive husband. Hope’s Door Shelter, located in Caldwell, Idaho, was opened as a sanctuary for victims of domestic violence to seek refuge before more lives might be taken.
Hope’s Door is the only domestic violence specific women’s and children’s shelter in Canyon County. We provide protection not only for victims of Canyon County, but to the entire state of Idaho, and to victims across the country. Hope’s Door Shelter has 28 private bedrooms where women and their children have the security and safety needed to begin moving forward with a violence-free future.
While our emergency shelter is for women and children only, Hope’s Door provides victim services to men as well. Hope’s Door is committed to meeting the needs of ALL victims. We are able to provide male victims with emergency lodging through local hotels. We also have classes available to men. To find out more about how we can support male clients, click here.
While staying at Hope’s Door, survivors are able to take part in many different educational courses that focus on healthy relationships and life skills. Our goal is to empower individuals to set the course for eliminating violence in their lives and throughout our community.
