$10.00 provides a hot shower, toiletries, a warm towel and the opportunity to reconnect with dignity and hope. It also includes costs for water, permits, gas and other incidentals. Associated organization, Lava Mae, is addressing the lack of access to showers and toilets faced by those experiencing homelessness. It only takes one night of sleeping on a cold, concrete street, exposed to the elements, breathing in the exhaust of cars passing by before your sense of worth is shattered. When you are dirty, people will not sit next to you on a bus or look at you as they pass you on the street. Something so simple as a shower can reconnect people to their dignity, seed hope and eliminate obstacles to opportunity such as housing, employment and the maintenance of health. The mobile hygiene units have three shower/toilet stalls each; one stall is ADA accessible.
