David Williams picks weeds as part of landscape work at Esther Simplot Park on Sept. 5. Williams is part of a group of workers who were once homeless and found jobs with Boise Parks and Recreation through a program co-hosted by Interfaith Sanctuary. The J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Family Foundation is donating money to the city to keep the program going through the winter and expand it next year.
