Scranton, PA —The Wright Center for Community Health recently held an organization-wide donation drive to benefit the NEPA Youth Shelter in Scranton. Donations were delivered to Maureen Maher-Gray, Executive Director of the NEPA Youth Shelter, in July.

The NEPA Youth Shelter is a non-profit organization with a mission to provide quality emergency shelter and related services to unaccompanied youth ages 14 through high school graduation from all counties in NEPA. Employees of The Wright Center for Community Health donated hair care products, clothing, cleaning supplies, non-perishable food items and backpacks to the Shelter.

With a focus on social justice and advocacy, the Shelter welcomes youth from all backgrounds and especially affirms to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) youth, as this population constitutes a high percentage of homeless youth in our area.
