One of the biggest challenges faced by the 4,000+ homeless citizens in Baltimore is to maintain their personal hygiene. Getting clean is a huge issue for people living on the streets, because
few shelters and service providers have showers, and those that do are either communal
shower space or in such limited supply, making it a very long wait for people to simply take a
shower. With very few public spaces available for the homeless to take a shower, many go
weeks and even months without bathing. Without access to hygiene, people loose their sense of
self and dignity. Without dignity, people eventually loose hope. Lack of hygiene is a major
barrier to homeless persons as they seek jobs and housing opportunities
Generosity Shower is an innovative mobile shower service built to bring clean and fresh showers, hygiene and other holistic wellness services to people experiencing homelessness.
