After spending a lot of time with a homeless person who became my friend, I asked: "Benny, how long has it been since you've had a shower?" His response "A year, Ms. Teresa." When I left Benny that day, my mind was racing.  Walking up the steps to our house, the idea hit me of the need for  A MOBILE SHOWER unit!  So the process started right away.  I went back few days later to visit Benny and told him my idea.  He was SO HAPPY.  He said, "more than food, I need a shower."  Shower Power is more than a shower.  We want to bring hospitality to the streets by delivering mobile hygiene services to people experiencing  homelessness.  It's about taking time to show people that you care, and restoring dignity by providing resources needed for self-care.  The homeless face many challenges, one being the difficulty in getting access to a shower.  Even if they can get to a shelter, the shelter may not have a shower.
