Boise – February 19, 2016 – (RealEstateRama) — A Treasure Valley businesswoman who has helped homeless veterans and immigrants with critical housing needs will be presented the Spirit of Idaho Award by Idaho Senator Mike Crapo this Friday.  Joy Schweitzer, the daughter of a World War II veteran, has used her company, Around the Town, to find more than three-dozen homeless vets a place to live.  Crapo created the award to recognize Idahoans who go beyond the norm to help others.
