Allentown Rescue Mission Updated COVID-19 Procedures

The Allentown Rescue Mission continues to stay open

During the evolving pandemic of the Coronavirus, the Allentown Rescue Mission has stayed open and continues to accept men. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and restore men who are homeless and for many men the Allentown Rescue Mission is their last and only option.

            At this time, we have roughly 45 men residing at the Allentown Rescue Mission and that number changes every day as we are accepting men 24/7.  We have beds for 123 and have plans to take more if need be.

            As of now we have an exhaustive list of policies for the shelter to limit the potential for Covid transmission.  We developed our protocol based upon CDC guidelines. The men in different programs are physically separated and we have restricted the amount of interaction and sharing of common spaces between the staff and our men.        

            We need and appreciate your help now more than ever as the Allentown Rescue Mission is our men’s home.  We are especially thankful to donors who have dropped off food and much needed supplies.  Please continue your support.  We accept physical donations via curbside drop off so donors can maintain social isolation in their car.

            Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
