Streetside Showers

Share about your mission and how your organization is making a difference in Dallas.

Our mission is "To offer hope and help restore human dignity to the homeless community in the form of a hot shower and personal hygiene care". We are dedicated to providing basic human needs, restoring human dignity, and improving the quality of life of our unhoused neighbors. We have four weekly shower stops across North Texas in Collin, Denton, and Dallas County. At each stop, our guests are able to get a shower along with a hygiene kit and several pairs of socks. Our mission is to spread showers to those who need it but also give the individuals essentials they can use while we are serving other communities. Currently, we provide approximately 90 showers each week and we are hoping to continue expansion.

Have you participated in North Texas Giving Day in past years? What was your experience?

This is our second year participating in North Texas Giving Day. We had an amazing experience last year and are looking forward to being a part of this event again! Last year we raised just over $20,000 and we are hoping to double that so we can reach more homeless in our community.

Other than a donation, how can individuals and groups support your cause?

We love serving alongside volunteers at our shower stops. People can sign up on our website to volunteer with us at one of our shower locations. Also, people can host donation drives at their schools or churches. Lastly, we need hands to help package the hygiene kits and socks we hand out to each guest after their shower.

What are some of your other favorite causes in North Texas?

We are grateful to serve our community alongside some other fantastic organizations. Some of these organizations include Hope Clinic, Our Daily Bread, Crisis Ministries, Minuteman Disaster Response, Shiloh Place, and Assistance Center of Collin County.
