WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO SOLVE
The homeless in rotating housing programs or those staying at encampments often do not have access to showers or laundry services. When they desire a shower or clean clothes, they must take time out of their day to search for available facilities. All the while suffering the indignity of traveling on public transportation in an unclean state. It can be quite stressful, and even costly when considering the transportation and facility fees.
Our Desire To Help:
Purchase a trailer outfitted with two shower restrooms and two washer and dryer units to be moved from designated locations, such as churches or private businesses, and even remote encampments. In addition, the trailer will include a volunteer nurse or case worker to assist in medical assistance, referrals and counseling for health issues and counsel on housing, education etc. services available to the homeless.
