Our first significant project, "Upward Mobility #1" is a modified 6' x12' cargo trailer with 2 full sized washers, 2 full sized dryers, AND storage space for donated clothing and personal hygiene items. We stage events periodically for local needy folks, at convenient locations.
This is our next major project, currently under study and seeking funding sources. This will be a mobile shower AND laundry unit, likely housed in a full sized motor home. We plan to have 2 hot showers, and 2 heated dressing rooms, plus 2 washers and 2 dryers in a stacked configuration at the rear.
Our biggest longer range goal, is to provide a tiny home solution for transition and/or permanent housing to permanently reduce the homeless population. There are many successful models we are studying from around the country, and we hope to get support of local corporate entities as well as government, to make this a reality.
For those who don't wish to get off the streets, or for those unable to find other more developed shelter, it's vitally important to at least upgrade their living situation to make it a bit more tolerable, survivable, and above all else, warm at night.
Socks, shoes, pants, shirts, blankets, and so on....Just some of the items we collect and supply to our guests at laundry events, and elsewhere.
We put 'care packages' or 'friendship bags' together to hand out at laundry and other events. Many of the items in the bag are essential hygiene items for both men and women.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
