We are excited for the opportunity to bring ShowerUp to Chattanooga!

It's a community effort and we need your help. It's our intention for Chattanooga to have its own mobile shower unit and start serving this spring in multiple locations around the city where friends who are experiencing homelessness can be served the best. The need to launch and operate ShowerUp Chattanooga for 2023 is $193,000. If you can help with a donation, please click the donate button below.

ShowerUp relies on the local community to fund our outreach. Individuals, families, churches, and businesses support ShowerUp.

Right now we are looking for friends to help in these areas:

Community Relationships - Helping us find other groups and organizations who are serving the unhoused in Chattanooga and who would be interested in collaborating. Our partnerships allow us to have the greatest impact on the people we are trying to serve.

City Leadership - We always want to be a good neighbor in the communities we serve. Working with local government, law enforcement, homeless outreach, social service and other groups and individuals is very important.

Fundraising - As a 501c3 charitable nonprofit, ShowerUp needs friends in each city we serve who are willing to help support what we do.

Awareness - Sharing about ShowerUp through social media, traditional media, public speaking, podcasts, etc. helps awareness grow and gives us a foundation for building grassroots and community awareness, volunteer cultivation, and donor development.

We believe that everyone
deserves a shower

ShowerUp provides those experiencing homelessness in Chattanooga, TN, and beyond with mobile showers and personal hygiene necessities. Our mission is to build relationships, restore hope and dignity, and show the love of God to those in need through shower services and personal care. 

According to the 2021 Point-In-Time Count, there were over 1,200 homeless individuals on a single night in the Chattanooga area, with over 350 of them being in Hamilton County. This is an 81% increase in the homeless population from the previous year. For the most up-to-date info, please follow us on social media. We provide these services to neighborhoods surrounding Chattanooga, TN as well.
