Because of Your generosity we provided over 7,500 Showers in 2019
- $65 provides one carton of biodegradable wipes for 24 guests for one month, which will bridge the gap for us until we can re-open at our Downtown Santa Barbara locations.
- $1200 provides enough biodegradable wipes for all of our guests for one month.
- $100 provides take out meals for guests at one shower site per week.
Your financial support helped 760 unduplicated individuals get a hot shower this year. Some took only one shower. Others took 70 or 80. All were deeply thankful for the chance to get clean in a dignified and loving environment.
We know there are many more house-less individuals who have yet to shower with us. We want to bring our shower trailer to them as well. That’s why we plan to open at least two new weekly sites in 2020.
More than 70 people volunteer in various capacities to make this project work. We couldn’t do this without them. Nonetheless, financial donations are critical to cover the costs of equipment, insurance, fuel, supplies and the small operating staff that actually allows us to bring our services to the people who need them most.
Thank you for your support.

VOLUNTEER WITH US
Showers of Blessings is a Isla Vista, California based mobile hygiene ministry which offers showers to those of a critically low income. We help people with clean clothing and getting themselves clean. Contact us to be a volunteer.
Why is this ministry needed?
Humans at a base level need some amenities to feel like valuable people after a time. One of those needs is to be clean along with having clean clothing. At Showers of Blessing our goal is to provide both the clean clothing and the chance to get themselves clean. In doing this we are hopeful of helping them gain the stability to get employment and housing.
