Public Shower

People Experiencing Homelessness go days or weeks without a clean, quiet and safe space to practice self-care. We provide a shower to 100 - 150 people EVERY MONTH!

In case you have not done this before: volunteers purchase the materials, assemble the kits and drop them off at our downtown location. Please arrange a drop-off time with me once you are finished assembling.


You can include however many of the following in gallon sized Ziploc bags. The bags do not have to include every single item on this list, but the most important ones are body soap, shampoo, deodorant and then either a razor + shaving cream or a toothbrush + toothpaste. These items can be bought from anywhere, as long as they are new. Travel sized is the best option.

  • Body wash
  • Razors
  • Shaving cream
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Tampons
  • Pads
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrush
  • Non-alcohol based mouthwash
  • Soap
  • Washcloth
  • Deodorant
  • Shampoo and Conditioner
  • Comb or brush
  • Lotion
  • Lip-balm
  • No Rinse Body Wash
  • No Rinse Shampoo


Prefer to order online? Ask Noah Chan about our Amazon wish list! If possible, please assemble these kits into Tupperware containers or backpacks/bags so that the beneficiaries may use it afterwards!

Feel free to include any bonus items too! E.g. Entertainment, puzzles, board games, playing cards, gift cards, snacks, beverages, etc.


When you are ready, please setup a drop-off time with Noah Chan at n.chan@houseofcharity.org or 612 436 2050

Mission Statement

To feed those in need, house those experiencing homelessness and empower individuals to achieve independence.

Description

As of January 1, 2021, St. Stephen’s Human Services and House of Charity have merged. Together, we will be able to serve more people and provide a more comprehensive continuum of services - from outreach, to shelter, food, treatment and mental health services, and ultimately, housing. We are still using both names for now, but will have a new look and new organization name later this year.
