ICS Hygiene Center

Monday through Friday from 8am to 2pm

The ICS Hygiene Center provides adults experiencing homelessness a place to wash clothes, take a shower and spend a few hours in a warm, safe and dry place. The ICS Hygiene Center is open weekdays from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm, creating a welcoming environment to anyone who walks through our doors.

Each weekday morning our industrial washer, dryer, and hot water heater are put to use, washing clothes and offering showers for 40-60 people. Our Hygiene guests receive toiletries such as razors, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrushes and soap. They also can find case management and supportive services such as assistance with job applications, signing up for food stamps, housing applications, shelter referrals, getting connected with other resources, etc.

Thank you to our supporters for helping us to care for those in our community who are homeless!
