Donating to GBRF helps our friends, neighbors, and those we pass on the street every day in Ada County.  It stays in our community to address its most pressing needs and affords us the opportunity to effect change right in our own backyards.  This is our community and GBRF is a powerful agent of change in our Ada County.
