Homeless communities across the country are constantly fighting for necessities such as personal hygiene services and products. ShowerUp provides those experiencing homelessness in major cities across the US with mobile showers and hospitality stations. Here are some places where you can find free access to showers and toiletries if you are currently struggling with homelessness.
Wichita, KS Free Shower for Homeless Communities
ShowerUp provides those experiencing homelessness in Wichita, KS, with mobile showers and personal hygiene necessities. In Sedgwick County, between 750 and 1200 men, women, and children were experiencing homelessness from 2018 to 2019. There was a 3.5% increase as more people found themselves on the street. With the recent COVID-19 crisis, unemployment rates have exploded from 3.8% to 19.3%, which means that those that have been “fragilely housed” may find themselves unhoused and in need of resources.

Chicago is home to nearly 10 million people, and about 80,000 are categorized as “unhoused.” ShowerUp is constantly providing Chicago homeless communities with those who are the most in need.

Our outreach includes a mobile shower unit, shower kits, socks, underwear, and everything needed for our unhoused brothers and sisters in Chicago.

Showers for Homeless Communities in Boston, MA
In 2021, homelessness in Boston reached a pivotal moment with the convergence of mental illness and substance use. The encampment on Massachusetts Ave and Melnea Cass Blvd was at the forefront of many discussions. Before this representation in Boston existed, the issue of homelessness had always been a constant issue, with the health and livelihood of these communities commonly being ignored. ShowerUp is always looking for new locations struggling with large groups of homeless communities, such as Boston, MA. ShowerUp will emphasize and focus on improving their lifestyle and helping them out of the homelessness cycle.
