03 Jan Margaret Briggs Foundation Fuels Progress at Keystone Mission with Grant Award
Scranton, PA – The Margaret Briggs Foundation awarded Keystone Mission a $25,000 grant to support the ongoing needs of the Scranton Innovation Center for Homeless & Poverty.
Keystone Mission’s Scranton Innovation Center for Homeless & Poverty is a hands-on training and educational day center that provides the necessities for men and women who are experiencing homelessness to begin the process of life transformation to independent, sustainable living. Part of our programming includes job readiness that allows our “guests” to learn soft and hard skills such as time management, communication skills, and resume building for career placement.
In the last year, Keystone Mission forged a partnership that allows showers for guests through the Weston Field House on Providence Road. The opportunity to practice proper hygiene is essential to giving our guests a hand up – in job interviews and personal care.
“We have seen an increase in services over the last year in the number of individuals requiring the services offered by Keystone Mission. This support from The Margaret Briggs Foundation will help us tremendously as we meet the increasing demand for services from our Scranton Innovation Center guests, for which we are grateful,” says Danielle O. Keith-Alexandre, CEO & Executive Director of Keystone Mission.
Keystone Mission is thankful for community partners like The Margaret Briggs Foundation for supporting the mission to bring help and hope to the homeless, hungry, and hurting in Northeast PA.
