When you’re living on the streets, it’s hard enough to find food and shelter. But it can be even harder to find somewhere to get clean. On any given day, 550,000 Americans experiencing homelessness don’t have regular access to a shower. We are working to fix that, with our partners who are helping bring mobile showers to the streets, where people need them most.
In 2019, we helped provide nearly 40,000 showers in 20 communities across the country. More than 14,000 individuals have used a mobile shower unit in our network of partners, and nearly 1,000 volunteers have helped ensure these showers arrive in local communities, remain clean and functioning, and provide camaraderie and human connection to anyone who stops by.
