Tuscany House


Established 2007
Bright Tomorrows Child Advocacy Center moved into Tuscany House in August 2007. At that time, BTCAC realized a dream and opened the doors to a full-functioning Child Advocacy Center. The new space better serves the children and families of Southeastern Idaho affected by child sexual abuse. The generosity and involvement of the entire community in building a new facility allowed the dream to be possible. The cities of Pocatello and Chubbuck, along with Bannock County, strongly supported this building project. Tuscany Builders and numerous subcontractors and suppliers in Southeastern Idaho gave of their time, talents, and hearts. Financial donations from local banks, business, and individuals along with the generosity of the builders and subcontractors built this facility debt free.
