Learn About Us
Shower The People is incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit in Nashville, TN. Our board members are Russ Arnold, Caleb Pickering, and Danny Batson, all of whom currently volunteer in the homeless community through the Green Street Church of Christ in Nashville, which has served the homeless for the last 16 years.
We have seen that showers are one of the greatest unmet needs of the homeless community. While there are some organizations in Nashville doing their part to meet this need, for which we are very thankful, the number of homeless continues to exceed any one organization's capabilities. Even with the help of these community partners, there are still so many people lacking access to a clean shower. We felt the call to do something about this need. Through our conversations and experiences with homeless individuals in our community about this need, Shower The People was born.
Shower The People’s primary purpose is to show love by providing mobile shower facilities to homeless individuals in the community. We believe that a shower is an essential part of a person’s well-being and self-worth. So many people do not have access to a simple shower, which many of us take for granted. A shower is essential for a person’s well-being. The ability to become physically clean restores dignity and opens the doors of opportunity, by way of jobs and housing.
We will provide on-site showers for those without access to permanent facilities, by using a converted school bus that is equipped with both showers and a restroom. Services will be provided on a previously-determined route, and they will be scheduled primarily during the evening hours. In addition, we have plans to fulfill other needs as funds become available, such as providing hygiene products, laundry services, and clothing.
Our focus will be on the homeless community of Nashville, TN. However, we may also be available for disaster relief assistance and other outreach efforts.
