Allentown Rescue Mission COVID-19 Procedures
The Allentown Rescue Mission will be staying open
(Allentown, PA)—With the growing pandemic of the Coronavirus in the Lehigh Valley the Allentown Rescue Mission is taking steps to make sure that our men are remaining safe and healthy.
The Allentown Rescue Mission plans to stay open and continue accepting men during the Pandemic. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and restore men who are homeless and the Allentown Rescue Mission is their last and only option.
We are taking every precaution possible, including facility isolation areas, to minimize the spreading of COVID-19 among both clients and staff.
Men with symptoms will go to the Hospital for testing and potential admittance. Should the hospital send men home who have tested “positive”, they will be allowed to return to the mission and stay in a newly created isolation area. We are their home.
We need and appreciate your help now more than ever. Please continue your financial support and we now accept physical donations via curb-side drop off so donors can maintain social isolation in their car.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
Stuart “Skip” Smith, CEO
