Jesse Tree: Treasure Valley’s Homeless Prevention Hub Jesse Tree prevents eviction and homelessness for families in Idaho’s Treasure Valley by providing timely financial assistance, case management, and connections to a comprehensive array of community resources in a family’s most serious time of need. Since 2001, Jesse Tree has prevented over 3,000 households and 8,000 individuals from falling into homelessness, administering over $2.5 million in rental assistance. As the Treasure Valley’s major homeless prevention-focused organization, Jesse Tree is also working to coordinate a community-wide effort to identify and embrace people struggling to pay rent to lower the number of households experiencing homelessness for the first time.
The Emergency Rent and Mercy Assistance Program, also known as ERMA provides a "safety net" to extremely low, very low and low income families in need of short term, temporary assistance to keep them from slipping into the abyss of homelessness. This is a pro-active program that is dedicated to the prevention of homelessness in our community. The Jesse Tree of Idaho, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, administers this program in our office located in Boise, Idaho.
