For Immediate Release


Boise, ID –Lysi Bishop Real Estate surpassed its fundraising goal and will be donating $57,000 to the Boise Women’s and Children’s Alliance (WCA). The donation campaign set out to raise $25,000 that would be matched by Lysi Bishop, instead raising $28,462 with the help of friends, clients, and local businesses. Lysi Bishop Real Estate matched the full funds donated and rounded up an even $57,000.

The donation campaign ran from September 9 to October 31, 2021, where they exceeded their goal of $50,000 by $7000. The goal of this campaign set out to raise funds for the WCA and spread awareness of domestic abuse and sexual assault. We are grateful to Lysi Bishop for the opportunity to provide information at open houses about the WCA’s services and critical role in our community to new and existing residents of the Treasure Valley.

“I am humbled by the amazing show of support from our community,” Lysi said. “We have a history of working with the WCA and supporting their efforts, and we are honored to present them with this donation. Thank you to everyone who helped us surpass our goal.”

During this global health crisis, we have modified the way we deliver some services, moving to telephonic and video conferencing solutions to help protect the health and safety of our staff and clients. However, we have continued to provide critical WCA services. We know that many individuals within our community already at risk of domestic abuse may experience even more vulnerable and dangerous circumstances.  

In 2020, the WCA experienced an 84% increase in the number of domestic violence-related calls to our 24-hour hotline and a 375% increase in the average number of emergency intakes into shelter. By June 2021, the number of calls to our hotlines had reached an all-time high both in sheer volume and in the number related to domestic violence.

The Women’s & Children’s Alliance provides safety, healing and freedom from domestic abuse and sexual assault. The WCA operates secure shelters and provides professional counseling, legal advocacy, crisis services and case management to survivors of domestic and sexual abuse.
