We measure how well children and families do while receiving services and for up to one year after services have ended. Multiple indicators are used including: sobriety, educational progress, family functioning, child behavior, the presence of positive supports, as well as child, family, and referral source satisfaction.
The majority of funding for IYR programs and services come from generous donors and revenue from our thrift stores. Other funding comes from contracts, grants and foundations, and fees-for-services. The agency Annual Report provides more detailed information on agency revenue and expenses.
The Nagel Center, located in Boise, is the home to our main distribution center, administrative offices and our family counseling office serving south-western Idaho.
