Interested in helping your community??

Shower Power Plus (SPP) is seeking kindhearted people who want to contribute to creating a positive impact in our community as drivers for our shower trailer which serves our unhoused neighbors.

Our goal is to have a three driving teams of two volunteers. Each team will have a driver to tow the trailer and the other to tow a generator. By having three teams to share responsibility it allows for volunteers to drive once or twice a month. These teams will be key part of our growing SPP team.

Driver responsibilities include:

  • Connecting the shower trailer/ generator to a tow vehicle at the storage lot
  • Towing the shower trailer/ generator to the deployment site ~10 miles
  • Setting up the shower trailer at the deployment site, including leveling the trailer and hooking up the utilities
  • At the end of the deployment period the team will disconnect utilities, reconnect the trailer/ generator to the tow vehicle and return the vehicles to the storage lot.

SPP’s shower trailer has five shower stalls to support our ongoing efforts to improve health and hygiene of our unhoused community. The vehicle weighs 10,000 lbs. and requires a ¾ to 1 ton tow vehicle, the generator however, can be towed by a small pickup truck. A commercial driver’s license is not necessary but towing experience is desirable. Volunteers with or without their own tow vehicle are encouraged to apply. A valid driver’s license is required, and a background check will be conducted.

Thanks for reading. We look forward to hearing from you.

Description

BABH is an all-volunteer run organization! Our main program is called Shower Power Plus, which provides showers to houseless people. Without a dedicated and committed team of community volunteers like you we could not be there for our guests in need.We are searching for people who want to contribute to creating a positive impact in our community as a volunteer.

Shower Power Plus also works closely with Community Partners creating an inviting atmosphere for guests. This "Village of Care" approach has attracted partners who provide, food, clothing, medical, employment information, and a range of related supplies and services.

As we grow and evolve our operations, it is crucial that we continue to promote a favorable and lasting impression of BABH in the minds of everyone with whom we interact, including guests, donors, media, volunteers, and the general community.
