Dignity.

We don’t want people to lose it. 

For over ten years, our community of leaders and volunteers have been dedicated to connecting Los Angeles residents with people suffering from the homelessness crisis.

Our sustained and growing efforts have helped to serve Los Angeles better.

Normalizing the unhoused

Over 2,000 Free Showers a month doesn’t describe the impact that we have. From giving people the chance to be clean and healthy, an integral part of our mission is to provide a sense of dignity back to our unhoused Angelenos.

When we operate a site, we don’t just offer showers; we work with community partners to ensure that every guest that comes to our sites have access to meals, clothing, hygiene items, and more importantly, case management.

While we recognize showers as a critical need, our goal is to offer our unhoused Angelenos a path out of homelessness and to bring our community together.

Since we started the mobile Shower Program, we have delivered over 25,000 free showers, have partnered with over 50 local organizations, and have engaged the community of Angelenos through more than 15,000 volunteer hours.
