Most of us realize that a major problem for the homeless is the lack of the availability of showers, a place to do their laundry and basic grooming opportunities. It’s the main reason many don’t seek employment, housing assistance, medical care and other services for which they are eligible. In addition, if they’re not clean they tend to be shunned by others. Yet when they’re clean, have clean clothes and a haircut and a shave, it provides homeless individuals with a first step toward self-sufficiency.

Butte County supports many programs and services in attempting to meet the needs of the homeless in various communities, yet the Butte County Homeless Continuum of Care 2017 Point in Time Survey shows there was a 76% increase in homelessness last year.  In an effort to help homeless individuals, Oroville Southside Community Improvement Association (OSCIA) hopes to partner with community, government (city and county), and health care agencies to host the area’s first mobile hygiene outreach program: Haven of Hope on Wheels.

The Haven of Hope on Wheels truck/trailer will provide shower and laundry facilities, as well as hair grooming, to homeless clients. When clean and well-groomed individuals can seek and hold jobs, make and keep medical appointments, and in general have a sense of personal pride, it will make a huge difference in their lives. In addition, homeless individuals will be informed about available services such as health care, job training and placement, housing and education.

Hear from some of our supporters:
"Everyone deserves an act of kindness, a hot shower and clean clothes, to be embraced with words that “care” and to walk away with dignity knowing that there is a Haven of Hope."  
- Janet Goodson 
Vice Mayor (City of Oroville)

"Haven of Hope on Wheels is a wonderful, simple idea that has the potential to make a big difference for Butte County's homeless population. For most, it will at the least make life a little less miserable. For some, it could well provide a turning point toward recovery. I'm proud to support Pastor Kevin Thompson's efforts".
- Don Noble

"Pastor Kevin Thompson is providing a unique opportunity to do something positive on behalf of our brothers and sisters who are in desperate need; it’s exciting to be part of a such a worthwhile effort."
- Linda Draper

We’d greatly appreciate your donation of any amount to our GoFundMe page.
