Our mission is to provide integrated services that support recovery and enhancement of life. We endeavor to create a collaborative environment that fosters hope, stability, and respect among persons served, employees, and our community.
We aspire to be the human service agency of choice within our community, highly valued by the participants we serve, respected by competitors and colleagues, and acknowledged for innovative service delivery.
We value professionalism, competency, and high ethical standards in our employees and contractors. We perform our duties while maintaining respect for others, a non-judgmental attitude, genuine caring, and acceptance for all whom we serve. We demonstrate the importance of honesty, hope, compassion, empathy, and support in our actions.
As part of Human Support’s mission, we aim to bring hope and stability to all persons regardless of background or experience. It is the policy of Human Supports of Idaho, Inc. to provide essential behavioral health services regardless of the participant’s ability to pay.
For participants who are uninsured or underinsured, we can provide pro bono or sliding scale fee services. Human Supports of Idaho, Inc. will base program eligibility on a person’s ability to pay and will not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, creed, religion, disability, or national origin.
The Federal Poverty Guidelines are used in creating the annual and updating the sliding fee schedule (SFS) to determine eligibility. Though we would like to assist every individual in a timely manner, we do occasionally have a waiting list for these services. Please contact our office for more information on how to complete a pro bono/sliding scale application.

The NHSC was created because of the health care crisis in the 1950s and 1960s. Older physicians retired and young doctors stopped choosing general practice. This meant areas of the country would have no access to primary care. The NHSC stepped in to support health centers in rural, urban, and tribal communities. Their efforts addressed a growing primary health care shortage. HSI is proud to be accredited by this organization. We are able to help those who are located in rural and urban areas and make sure that no one gets turned away from services.
HSI does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability in its health programs and activities.
