Showers of Blessings is an ecumenical outreach ministry to the homeless people in North County San Diego. It is sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego and coordinated by members of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Del Mar; St. Andrews Episcopal Church, Encinitas; St. Patrick Catholic Church, Carlsbad; San Dieguito United Methodist Church, Encinitas; and First Christian Church, Oceanside. We provide a hot
shower opportunity for our homeless guests, as well as breakfast, clothing and haircuts, free of charge. We are in need of a 2nd trailer unit in order to service the homeless population in North County. This second unit will relieve the burden on our one (primary) shower unit that travels throughout San Diego County. This will also enable us to provide showers on more days for the people we serve in North County. Your donation is much appreciated as it will enable us to alleviate some of the burden of our homeless community while they strive to get back on their feet.

Thank you to all of our amazing contributors who have made it possible to purchase a new shower trailer and truck to pull it. In Carlsbad we will be expanding to once a week showers in October, and Encinitas hopes to follow suit by the end of the year.
We have more churches interested in joining our ministry so by next year we hope to have a few more locations.
God bless you all for making this ministry a reality.

Good news! We have ordered our new shower trailer and await delivery the end of August. We are still in need of a truck to pull it though, so please share our GoFundMe site with your friends. We hope to be able to provide weekly showers up and down our SD North Coast by this fall. We will do it with your help. Thanks everyone for being a part of this amazing ministry. See below for working donation link.

Great news for all of you who have supported us so generously, and for the people who will benefit from this ministry. We have been able to order our new trailer and it will arrive in August. We hope to be able to offer showers once a week up and down the North County coast by this fall.
However...we are still in need of a truck to pull the trailer, so we are hoping you will share this site with all of your friends and family. Help us make the goal of once a week a reality, and help us bring this much needed service to our homeless community.

Just an update for all of you who have so generously supported our ministry of Showers of Blessings. Our North County Showers of Blessings community is hard at work raising money through outreach to their congregations, friends and families. The GoFundMe site has been a blessing also, as so many of you from far and wide have given so generously. We hope to be able to order our shower trailer by the end of April if all goes well.
So we are hoping the word gets out to even more people who might be willing to support this amazing ministry. Please share the word and pray for us.
