I really enjoy Homedale, it's a very small community and a lot of people know each other. The community is conservative yet open minded since it is a farming community which is diverse in terms of ethnicity. It's a great town for small town people!

Homedale Idaho is not a perfect place, however no where on Earth is perfect. There aren’t a whole lot of places to get jobs, though it is a nice place to make a home. You can start all kinds of back yard projects without too much fuss and life is usually quiet, every now and then you’ll hear someone using a hammer but that’s no issue.
I love how close-knitted the community is. Everyone knows each other, and many participate in community activities. What I would like to change in the community, is to have a strong education system. The teachers are great, but I feel that there should be a stronger school curriculum for students to be better prepared for college.
