ESSA Bank & Trust Foundation grants $7,000 to VYH Independent Living in Luzerne County

A $7,000 grant from the ESSA Bank & Trust Foundation helped to underwrite the cost of a new 7-passenger van to provide transportation for participants in the Valley Youth House Independent Living Programs for homeless youth in Luzerne County.  The van makes it possible to transport clients to group activities, training, and college visits. Additionally, staff use the van to  move clients and their belongings in and out of housing.
