NAMPA — There’s a new sign over the entrance of the building located at 304 16th Ave. N in Nampa, one that’s yellow and blue and dons a sunflower and an outline of Idaho.

Formerly the Lighthouse Rescue Mission, the building — now known as the Ukrainian Welcome Center — serves as a gathering place for Ukrainian residents and refugees.
