Impact and Programs

Accomplishments Keystone Community Services provides programs that help low-income individuals and families stabilize and improve their lives and futures. In 2018, Keystone served over 32,000 people and helped 1,600 community volunteers engage in community support activities. Our three program areas include: Keystone Youth Development Programs help 345 Saint Paul youth succeed at school and in careers. We operate the Community Kids afterschool program at West 7th Community Center for youth in grades K-11, the Teen Tutor literacy program at McDonough Community Center for children in grades K-5, our youth-directed social enterprise, Express Bike Shop, and the Keystone Teen Tech Center for high school students. Keystone Basic Needs Programs help over 24,000 Saint Paul and Roseville individuals and families meet their needs for emergency food support and other social services each year. Keystone operates three food shelves--Midway, Rice Street, and Roseville—as well as a roving Foodmobile and summer Free Farmer’s Market produce distributions. We also offer housing crisis assistance, screening and referrals, and family case management. Keystone Senior Programs help 3,000 seniors remain healthy and independent. Keystone offers senior exercise and social programs at two community centers in Saint Paul: Merriam Park and West 7th. We also provide senior care management, Meals on Wheels, homemaking, and health advocacy for St. Paul seniors to help them live independently.
Current Goals In 2019 Keystone Youth Development Programs will help 450 Saint Paul youth succeed at school and in careers. Support services for youth include our Community Kids afterschool program at West 7th Community Center, the Teen Tutor literacy program at McDonough Community Center, our youth-directed social enterprise, Express Bike Shop, and the Keystone Teen Tech Center for high school students. In 2019 Keystone Basic Needs Programs expects to help over 26,000 Saint Paul and Roseville individuals meet their needs for emergency food support and other social services at one of our three foodshelves--Midway, Rice Street, and Roseville—or via our roving Foodmobile. We will also provide housing crisis assistance, screening and referrals, and family case management for 500 households. In 2019 Keystone Senior Programs will help 3,300 seniors remain healthy and independent through our active senior, senior care management, Meals on Wheels, homemaking, and health advocacy services. In 2019, Keystone will engage 1,600 community members in volunteer activities that benefit our community and we expect to provide education, family support and food support services in the community that will support an additional 2,000 people.
