Always one step ahead of the curve, Foothill Unity Center is now offering mobile showers, as well as other essential grooming services, for some underserved neighbors in our communities.
Foothill Unity has placed a major priority on the health and well-being on those less fortunate, many of whom are homeless, and the new addition of the mobile showers program — with funding through Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority and collaborations with local partners — is an ongoing weekly service for the community in need at both the Monrovia and Pasadena.
The mobile showers, which are discreetly placed inside a panel truck, will be hosted once a week at the Monrovia site and once a week at their Pasadena site. There is privacy assured and an assistant on hand if there are special needs.
Additionally, once a month Foothill Unity will also include other partner services including from Simply Divine, which provides mobile hair cutting, and Creative Works, which helps clients with a hot meal.
The inaugural program for the mobile showers were offered last Friday with partner Loving Care. The reaction was very positive and will ensure that unhoused clients are able to access showers, haircuts and nutritious meals. Charging stations for mobile devices are available too.
For further information, call (626) 358-3486 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. The Monrovia location is at 790 W. Chestnut Ave. and the Pasadena location is at 191 N. Oak Ave.
