Mobile Hygiene Unit
to those experiencing homelessness…
it is almost impossible to gain access to one of the most vital tools necessary for change: hygiene. Being properly groomed is an essential element of our daily regimen; it promotes health, confidence, and the ability to engage in meaningful social interactions. Jobs, assistance programs and positive human connection are extremely difficult to sustain as each day inevitably brings dirt, sweat and grime.
Providing showers to our homeless community is not only a method of cleanliness but also a great tool of empowerment. With the help of Lava Mae’s innovative toolkit we are currently raising funds to build a Mobile Hygiene Unit that can offer dignity, one shower at a time. This system would provide free showers, toilets, toiletries and a washer and dryer to thousands of homeless throughout New Jersey.
The Mobile Hygiene Unit will act as a beacon to circle around while other partnered organizations will offer social services, counseling, and help guests navigate a complicated system.
We are not stopping at one! The more MHU’s we have on the road the more places we can visit, the farther your support goes, and most importantly: the more people we can empower. Get in on the ground floor today, and let’s fight to make our community a little better, together!
