New Homeless Shelter Proposed for Scranton

A Scranton nonprofit is proposing to open a 50-bed homeless shelter in the city .

The Keystone Mission is seeking the city's permission to open an overnight shelter with a day center and support services.

The group currently operates a day facility that provides hot meals, clothing, diapers and other essentials.

It's one of the few facilities that serves the city's homeless population.

The new shelter would not only offer overnight lodging but job training and other services meant to get people into permanent homes.

The Zoning Board Meets at 6pm on Wedesday at City Hall.
