Your impact

Your support is needed more than ever

During this uncertain time, vulnerable people in our community are relying on community programs more than ever.

We remain focused on our mission to provide vital services to those most in need in our community, including isolated seniors and those needing food support. It is our priority to continue ensuring our vital supportive services are available for our most vulnerable participants.

Thankfully, because of your support, Keystone is there for people like Jean when they need a little extra help.

Jean lives with emphysema and that has caused a ripple effect in her life. For Jean, being able to visit Keystone’s Foodmobile helps her stretch her limited budget a little farther and gives her access to quality and healthy foods she needs to stay healthy. Best of all, the Foodmobile comes directly to Jean’s building so it is the safest, fastest way for her to get vital food support.  You make this possible!

“Many people think that this program is just helping us with groceries, but it really is so much more,” Jean says.

Today, you can be a champion for people like Jean. You can fill Jean’s kitchen with groceries and help ease a little of her worry.

During this uncertain time, your financial support of Keystone gives us the flexibility to continue offering vital services for the most vulnerable people in our community — seniors and people need food support. Your financial support ensures our programs are available for everyone who turns to us.

Every day, people like Jean turn to Keystone to help them through another day. Your support is needed more than ever.

With your gift today, you will provide nourishment and supportive services to Jean and thousands of neighbors in need in our community.

THANK YOU for the gift you make TODAY!

Strengthening our Community Together

Keystone’s mission is to build capacity in individuals and families so they can improve their quality of life. We depend on donors and volunteers to make sure all community members have access to basic needs and other community services that fulfill this important mission. With your help, we’ve been raising up individuals and neighborhoods in St. Paul and Ramsey County for 80 years.

Today we face new challenges. With shifts in funding and increased needs in the community, our individual and business partners as well as our social enterprises are helping us to close the gap between need and resources.

Keystone Community Services is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our Federal Identification number is 41-0693924. We are committed to best practices, including being transparent about our program outcomes and financial information. We invite you to read our annual reports for more information.

Keystone’s Programs are Essential: 

As you know, the Governor Walz issued an Executive Order directing Minnesotans to “Stay At Home” through April 10th. Keystone is an “essential” business and is part of the Twin Cities’ critical sector response to COVID-19. With this information, we will continue to operate our food shelf, crisis services, meals on wheels and case management programs that support our most vulnerable residents in St. Paul.  The executive order also defines “workers” and “personnel” as employees, contractors, vendors and volunteers. This clearly allows our dedicated and wonderful volunteers to continue serving at Keystone during this time. We will have more limited staff in our buildings but remain committed to offering vital support to those who need it.

Programs that are available to the community:

Our youth afterschool programs and active senior programs are cancelled as well as any large gatherings in our community centers. The Express Bike Shop is also closed to the public at this time.

We are actively monitoring the situation and will implement any additional strategies when necessary. Stay tuned for updates as things are rapidly changing.
