ICS Hygiene Center
Monday through Friday from 8am to 2pm
The ICS Hygiene Center provides the adults experiencing homelessness to wash clothes, take a shower and spend a few hours in a warm, safe and dry environment. The 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 20 to 40 people. Once a week, we offer the option to wash larger items, including blankets and sleeping bags. Our Hygiene guests are given toiletries, such as razors, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrushes and soap. These essential services allow homeless individuals to participate in work, job search and community activities with dignity.
Thank you to our supporters for helping us to care for those in our community who are homeless!

*Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we are unable to have volunteers working in our Hygiene Center at this time.*
We are always in need of hygiene items such as travel size bars of soap, travel size shampoo and conditioner, wash cloths, disposable razors, etc. If you would like to organize a supply drive, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any specific needs we have at this time.

Do you own or work in a restaurant in Seattle? Or a hotel or corporate building that cooks meals on site? We are always looking for new meal partners to provide lunches for our Hygiene Center guests. Click here for more information.
