We provide educational camps and programs for youth with type 1 diabetes regardless of their ability to pay. Each camper’s diabetes management plan is reviewed before camp and at registration. Every effort is made to adhere to this plan and the wishes of the family and their physician. At the request of parents or campers, the camp medical staff will evaluate the diabetes plan and make suggestions for better control. In general, Camp Hodia recommends tight control by frequent testing, carbohydrate counting, multiple insulin injections, and avoidance of low blood sugars. Camp Hodia is fun and offers kids the opportunity to share common experiences, meet others with diabetes, and form meaningful friendships. For many campers this is their first time away from home. Our programs strive to foster self-esteem and self-reliance in a safe, healthy environment.
Idaho Anti-Trafficking Coalition

Idaho Diaper Bank
The Idaho Diaper Bank is one venue through which our community can positively impact the 1 in 3 babies and families in Idaho who are struggling to obtain an adequate supply of diapers to stay clean, dry and healthy. Diapers are expensive and can cost over $100 a month per child. For those living in poverty and low income, this expense often represents over 14% of after-tax income.
Wish Granters is honored to have been nominated for this significant gift. As a nonprofit organization that receives no state or federal funding, we rely on the donations from our generous community to help make these wishes come true. WishGranters makes a lasting impact in the lives of Idaho families by granting wishes to terminally ill adults. It is our mission to grant their wish, give them something to hold onto, something to look forward to, and their loved ones lasting memories to cherish forever.
