Sunrise Showers Portable Shower/Restroom Trailer
Introducing Sunrise Showers (Portable Shower Trailer Program).
A one stop shop for our brothers and sisters living outdoors.
Services Include: Hot Showers. Restrooms. Toiletries. Haircuts. Clothing. Food. Water. Shoes and much more.
Create: We want to help create communities that support dignified lives for all (food, water, shelter, healthcare services, etc.).
Empower: We aim to empower our friends by assisting them in finding jobs, housing, and connecting them to all available local/state/federal resources.
Unify: We aim to unify all stakeholders (homeless community, law enforcement, business community, faith sector, nonprofit sector, and individuals) in creating more compassionate communities.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Once fully funded, we will have designated stops/schedule in Monterey and San Benito County. We’ll have two trailers (Shower/Restroom Trailer and our Resource Trailer). Our Portable Shower/Restroom Trailer is self-contained (no need for water/electric hookups). We’ll be working with volunteers to assist with the set up and operations, partnering with local restaurants + the food bank for meals, and much more. Guests will be able to take a 10 minute shower, receive a haircut, use the restroom, and utilize our resource trailer as needed
WHAT DO WE NEED?
We need 50-75 people to help fundraise. Individuals will create an online fundraiser (takes 2 minutes) and we’ll assist you as you invite others to join in helping fund Sunrise Showers.
This is by FAR the most important step in bringing Sunrise Showers to our community.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
- Individuals: You can donate or fundraise. Text Todd at 831-905-0482 for your fundraising link
- Churches: Extend the opportunity to fundraise to your congregation
- Youth Groups/Local Nonprofits: Extend the opportunity to fundraise to your organization.
- Businesses: Become a corporate partner by donating $1,000 (logo on trailer and website + tax-write off).
The Bigger Picture:
While we believe in housing first approaches as they’ve proven effective in solving chronic homelessness. The reality is, until we are able to develop enough community support, it simply WILL NOT HAPPEN. I’ve had plenty of conversations over the years with our elected officials regarding tiny home villages, re-zoning, amending ordinances, etc. The reality is, without enough public pressure and support, it simply will not happen. The truth is, when the “least of us” feel seen, are invested in, loved on, empowered, and feel like they are a part of something bigger, our communities will thrive. That’s what we believe in and Sunrise Showers is the catalyst that will set our vision in motion…
But, it wont happen without your support!
Sooooo, you can donate below or you can help fundraise… That is the first step in making this happen…
