Help people in need get a fresh start

The fresh start wash and wellness program

Maintain Hygiene and Give Dignity

Homelessness is not always a choice and reasons vary from individual to individual. Our program isn’t just about giving a shower, it’s about a basic human right to be clean.  It’s about giving back dignity and hope to our unhoused population. We feel something as basic as a shower can be a catalyst for change in the lives of those we serve.

Feeling clean and having confidence in oneself opens the doors for engagement and opportunities. Access to showers on a regular basis will improve the desire to seek out help that is offered in your community. Working together we can reach a similar goal of placing the unsheltered in permanent housing.

Clean the World’s Fresh Start WASH & Wellness Program combines mobile showers units, WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) education and Wellness (COVID-19 testing, HEP A / HEP C vaccinations, and illness prevention) services.

 As these services are provided, we connect individuals to other organizations that provide emergency shelter, food, clothing, medical care, detoxification services, and hygiene supplies.

Mobility of the Fresh Start WASH and Wellness Shower Unit:

Our Fresh Start WASH & Wellness shower units are self-contained, with no need for hook up to power or water supplies.  This enables us to drive to locations and offer showers to those who cannot/will not visit your area drop-in locations. We work with your team to plan out a strategic showering schedules to meet your community needs.  Keeping the same schedule each week, enables our team to build the trust and relationships that will help motivate this population into permanent housing.

The fresh start experience

Street Outreach and HMIS Data Collection

The nature of our program allows us to have face to face interaction with this vulnerable community and is considered as street outreach in the majority of HMIS systems.  Our team will be trained on your CoC HMIS to capture specific data that you assign for our program. We can use your local CoC HMIS, to act as a point of entry to provide referrals for transition to treatment, job placement, and housing services for this underserved community.

Below is an example of our shower program days of the week service:

  • Guest arrives at scheduled shower location
  • HMIS intake and added to shower queue line
  • When time to shower each guest is given a towel, washcloth, and hygiene kit (if available, we also handout socks, underwear, hand sanitizer or other items)
  • 20-minute timer set outside the shower stall and door is locked for privacy
  • Guests receive 10 minutes of running water to shower using a timer inside the unit (showers are installed with pull chains to conserve water, except in ADA stall)
  • 5 minutes left of time, we give courtesy knock and announce they have 5 minutes left
  • After shower we ask how they feel and what can we do to make their hygiene experience better
