LEAP Housing Solutions

LEAP Housing Solutions is a Boise-based nonprofit who believes all people deserve an affordable home. LEAP was started by Bart Cochran, a Boise realtor, who saw vulnerable populations unable to access stable, affordable homes.

Mission

  • Preservation of existing affordable housing
