BOISE, Idaho (AP) - The Boise Rescue Mission plans to open two shelters in Nampa in the next two weeks.

The Idaho Statesman reports (https://bit.ly/1b1OH3p) that a men’s shelter called Lighthouse Rescue Mission and a women’s shelter called the Valley Women and Children’s Shelter are scheduled to open.

Officials say the women’s shelter has 60 beds and will welcome women and children who are homeless as well as those displaced by domestic violence. A grand opening is planned for Thursday.

The men’s shelter is a move that increases the available beds from 60 to 105. A grand opening is set for Feb. 20.
