The program is also available to young adults, ages 18 to 22, who are aging out of foster care. How CATCH program works? - The case manager will work with four shelters (Hope's Door, Lighthouse Rescue Mission, Salvation Army and Valley Crisis), as well as with WICAP, to receive referrals for families that meet the program qualifications. Once a family is determined to be eligible, that family will sign a lease directly with a landlord and CATCH of Canyon County will pay the rent, with funds donated by businesses, faith-based organizations, private individuals and stimulus dollars.
SHELTER PLUS CARE PROGRAM(S+C) is a program designed to provide housing and supportive services on a long-term basis for homeless persons with disabilities, (primarily those with serious mental illness, chronic problems with alcohol and/or drugs, and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) or related diseases) and their families who are living in places not intended for human habitation (e.g., streets) or in emergency shelters. The program allows for a variety of housing choices, and a range of supportive services funded by other sources, in response to the needs of the hard-to-reach homeless population with disabilities.

**Business Enterprise Programs: Many blind individuals manage and operate vending stands located in public buildings throughout Idaho. Interested individuals may receive training in accounting and management procedures, initial ordering and maintenance of equipment, stock, and supplies. This program makes it possible for some blind individuals to earn a living and pay taxes.

**Services for Seniors: The Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired provides specially designed services for seniors who are experiencing vision loss. These services may include home counseling, instruction in alternative techniques, peer support groups, low vision services, and making communities and resources more accessible for the senior blind or visually impaired person.

**Newsline for the Blind Reading Services: ICBVI has made available to the blind of Idaho a national newspaper service via the telephone. Additionally, volunteers broadcast the reading of the Idaho Statesman and other current materials on radio (this radio service is limited to a one-hundred mile radius of Boise).

The Idaho State Library's "Talking Book Program" provides, on loan, record players or tape players for blind persons to use to listen to books, magazines, and other recorded material. Call 334-2117 for more information.

**Employment: The ICBVI provides training and works with employers to provide opportunities. They provide employers with individual and group training on blindness and "What Blind People Can Do".

**Summer Programs for Youth: In order to help blind and visually impaired young people become self-sufficient adults, ICBVI offers the Summer Youth Program, Summer Work Experience Program, and College Days.
