In the Coeur d'Alene area, workers in the restaurant and hospitality industry are especially vulnerable, often lacking supportive relationships and access to resources that can see them through a crisis or prevent the slide into homelessness.

WE'RE HERE TO HELP.

OUR MISSION

As a community-wide organization of individuals and entities, representing a variety of backgrounds and perspectives, CDAIDE serves those working in Coeur d’Alene area restaurants and hotels by providing resources and emergency financial assistance, as well as building positive relationships.

 

WHO WE SERVE

WHY HOSPITALITY WORKERS?

Hospitality workers form one of the hardest-working yet most fragile groups in our community.

Whether they are servers, cooks, dishwashers, cleaners, receptionists, or others, they often struggle with limited income and assets, lack of insurance, and an absence of the resources their families need. In our area, many face a seasonal work cycle, with a long winter of reduced work and pay. Unexpected medical expenses, auto breakdown, or a lapsed rent payment can spell crisis, even homelessness or job loss, for them. Until now, they were not being served by any specific organization.

SERVICES

Our support may include financial aid for urgent needs, access to health care, connection to community resources, mentoring, counseling, and other measures to meet individual needs. All of our services are offered with no strings attached.

HOW WE WORK

CDAIDE works exclusively through referral from managers, owners, co-workers, and others. Individuals cannot self-refer for our services. Our initial target area is greater Coeur d'Alene, ID, including Hayden, ID.

 

CORE VALUES

SERVICE

We recognize and appreciate the demanding work of those in the hospitality industry

and seek to be of genuine and tangible service to them.

CONNECTEDNESS

We believe in helping individuals feel connected to their community and in

bringing different community entities together to collaborate in the care of hospitality workers.

UNCONDITIONALITY

We serve without expectation, no strings attached.

RESPECT

We believe in honoring the dignity of each person we serve, without judgment; we work to convey this same respect for one another as we work in partnership.

FAITH

We love because Christ first loved us. We seek to live out Christ’s example of grace through the service of care, and we welcome partners beyond the faith community.

I think more than anything, my involvement with CDAIDE has opened my eyes to the special people who wait on my table in a restaurant, take my counter order, make my coffee, or pour me a beer.
