After attending an informational dinner put together by Boise Angels alongside local Multimedia Company, Totally Boise, the hyperlocal division of webmarkets, Pedersen instantly was drawn to the purpose and efforts put forth by the Boise Angels.

“The mission behind Boise Angels truly resonated with me. From that night on, November 10, 2020, I knew there had to be a way I could show support. That’s when the idea of a house dedicated to the Boise Angels House came to be. I’ve been amazed to find local sub-contractors who are more than willing to participate in this amazing initiative. Supporting Boise Angels and their mission will better our communities and be an investment in our future.” - Karl Pedersen, CEO and Board of Director for the Diversified Opportunity, Inc and Owner of Southwood Homes, LLC.
