A shower and clean clothes ignite hope.
They deliver love in a simple and unappreciated form.
They allow those struggling to feel human
and remind them that they do matter.
The Showers For All mobile trailer provides showers and laundry to those living on the streets of Denver. Two full service bathrooms and multiple washers & dryers deliver a critical, and often forgotten, service to those struggling with homelessness and poverty.
The lack of shower/laundry facilities for people in need is a health crisis.
But we know this simple service can deliver big results...
Dirty clothes lead to harmful skin conditions
and invasive insect infestations.
During menstrual cycles, women unable to clean
are at higher risk of infection and Toxic Shock Syndrome.
Unclean job seekers are at an immediate
disadvantage to other applicants.
Personal hygiene = Feeling valued,
particularly for those with
mental health challenges.
Regular showers and laundry mean less missed school days for children
The future of Showers For All is not simply to deliver essential services in the Denver metro
area, but to provide the opportunity for anyone to launch these services in their own city.
Denver is the catalyst for a nationwide success story
that will deliver compassion, love, dignity and hope.
Many organizations have the financial resources but lack the knowledge base and time to launch their own vehicle. Others are very determined and experienced but are struggling with the costs currently offered by commercial manufacturers.
We can help with both.
By reducing vehicle costs and providing successful playbooks
of best practices and training/hiring resources,
we will open the door for organizations across the country.
