Generosity Global Inc. prepares to launch a mobile shower trailer to serve Baltimore’s homeless citizens.

Baltimore, MD. December 7 th , 2018: With a mission to help the homeless move from a place of crisis to self-sufficiency, Baltimore based non-profit organization, Generosity Global Inc., is being bold with a simple idea. The organization is preparing to launch its newest program, Generosity Shower, a mobile shower service on wheels. The public unveiling will be on December 22 nd , 2018, the same day as the organization’s largest outreach event, Selfless Christmas Eve, where nearly 1000 homeless men and women are served. The location for the event will be 907 E Saratoga St, Baltimore, MD 21202 (under the I-83 bridge).

The vision to introduce this new program / service to the 4,000 plus men and women who are homeless in Baltimore City, began 2 years ago. While serving food to their homeless guests through their monthly outreach program, Selfless Saturday, it became evident to Rich Akwo, the founder and Chief Impact Officer of Generosity Global Inc. that something was missing. Through direct engagement and interviews with the homeless guests the group serves, it was uncovered that people had a real need to take daily showers and maintain their personal hygiene.

Rich Akwo remembers a homeless man telling him “I have gone nearly 3 weeks without a shower and I feel dirty and ashamed when I go into public spaces”. Other concerns for the homeless regarding access to showers were that there were very few shower resources in the city that provided a safe and secure environment while people showered. Another woman mentioned “I just want a place I can go to and feel safe and relaxed, without worrying about someone invading my privacy or being attacked sexually”. Immediately,Akwo went into action, setting the organization on a course to meet this basic yet vital human need and give the homeless a service that will help restore hope and dignity.Through fundraising campaigns and general donations, Generosity Global Inc. was able to raise enough funds to build a 32 ft. trailer, and through a generous donation from Baltimore based firm The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, the trailer has now been retrofitted into shower on wheels. Generosity shower will feature 5 shower stalls (2 of which are handicap accessible), a luxurious interior design, and have the capacity to give showers to 120 of Baltimore’s homeless citizens each day. The vision is to provide a place where people can come shower and feel as though they just showered in a 5 star hotel, Akwo says. Generosity Shower has received support from a few early corporate partners & sponsors: Washington D.C based real estate firm Saydam Properties Group, architectural firm designCASE and Baltimore based T. Rowe Price Foundation.
