OUR MISSION

Showers of Blessing engages the compassion, volunteer spirit and financial support of the residents of South Santa Barbara County in the operation of a mobile shower trailer which delivers critical hygienic services to our most vulnerable houseless neighbors. We believe that a lack of basic hygiene leads to lowered self-esteem and invites unfair prejudices from the community at large. Showers of Blessing addresses this in three ways: 1.) By providing the houseless with warm, hygienic showers so they feel better about themselves; 2.) By employing our clients in the operation of the project so they feel productive and valuable and; 3.) By promoting collaboration between our houseless volunteers and other community volunteers in order to breakdown walls of misunderstanding.

Every dollar you donate to Showers of Blessing will be matched by an anonymous donor (up to $10,000).

What Can I Do?

Anyone can make a big difference:

One of the questions we ask some of our shower clients after their shower is
“How do you feel now?” The answers have been amazing:

“I feel like a human again.”

“It’s amazing how much better a single shower can make you feel.”

“Real, I can look for ways to make my life better now.”
