Emergency shelter receives grant funding

Keystone Mission received a $15,000 grant to support an emergency shelter in Luzerne County.

The grant from Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield will help fund operations at the Code Blue shelter run by Keystone Mission at their Transformation Center in Wilkes-Barre.

The temporary shelter opens on cold nights or when there is harsh winter weather to provide a warm place to sleep and connect individuals experiencing homelessness to proper mental and physical healthcare, counseling services, life-skills training, and job and housing programs.
