The purpose of SOS is to assist area nursing homes during COVID-19 pandemic.

"We are extremely grateful for Senator Yudichak’s leadership in protecting nursing home staff and residents during the COVID-19 pandemic. The S.O.S. program, in collaboration with the AllOne Foundation and Charities, continues to provide personal protective equipment and disinfectant supplies that assist nonprofit nursing homes in making family visitation safer” commented Jim Brogna, Vice President of Strategic Partnership Development at Allied Services.

Allied Services Integrated Health System currently provides skilled nursing care at 5 facilities in Lackawanna and Luzerne County. An additional 7 non-profit nursing homes in Lackawanna and Luzerne County received the safe visitation kits.
