HOPE and the IRWS Showers Program

$765 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 13 people in 5 months
Showers are a basic necessity, but finding accessible and hygienic showers is extremely challenging for individuals experiencing homelessness. Public restrooms rarely include showers and fail to meet the needs of those experiencing homelessness. Even in shelters, individuals are often limited to sharing a single shower with dozens of other residents.  

​Inaccessibility to showers has severe consequences on the health and wellness of our community members.

For two years, the IRWS Showers Program has alleviated this problem by providing Davis community members experiencing homelessness with free access to clean showers, toiletries, and towels every week. By operating at the UC Davis campus, the IRWS Showers Program maximizes convenience and accessibility for all community members.

Without sufficient funds, the IRWS Showers Program is at high risk of closing down at the end of winter quarter. 

To ensure that the IRWS Showers Program can continue to serve our community, HOPE at Davis will collect donations to assist with the program’s insurance and facility fees.

The cost to run the showers costs $500 per season. Our goal of $2000 will help pay facility fees for the next year, providing over 468 showers to those in need!
