OUR MISSION

A mobile shower helped me end my homelessness

Shower the People is a community-based mobile shower program that offers showers to homeless people.

Our mobile shower trailer has three private bathrooms, each equipped with a sink, toilet, and shower, and dispensers of biodegradable soap and shampoo. We supply clean towels, washcloths, toiletries, socks, T-shirts, and underwear.

We give people with the greatest need the opportunity to clean themselves with privacy and dignity on a regular basis. By helping our guests satisfy this basic human need of cleanliness we contribute to their confidence, stability, and self esteem.

Shower the People offers showers to homeless people in San Luis Obispo County. We currently provide showers at locations in Grover Beach and San Luis Obispo, and we continue to explore the options of operating in additional county locations where there are homeless people in need.

A mobile shower unit allows us the flexibility of locating at sites where our homeless neighbors gather to eat or to receive other services. We offer easy access, a safe environment, and a reliable schedule.

Our staff are all unpaid volunteers, and we are a nongovernmental organization that relies on the generosity of our community. You can make a big difference by donating, volunteering, and by sharing our mission.
