Mobile Shower and Laundry Truck Program Overview
In 2021, the Westminster Legacy Foundation worked with donors and sponsors to bring a mobile shower and laundry truck to Westminster’s Irving Street Library for our unhoused neighbors. A mobile trailer was outfitted with a series of four fully functioning shower bays and stocked with the necessary hygiene supplies for unhoused community members to enjoy a free, warm and refreshing shower. This mobile service served over 100 individuals each month during its tenure at the library.
The Mobile Laundry Service, run by Bayaud Enterprises, was also stationed at the Irving Street Library in the southern part of Westminster. Residents either experiencing homelessness or hailing from financially-fragile households were able to utilize this service. Participants were able to have two (2) ten-pound bags of clothes and bedding laundered and folded for them. The truck equipped with six (6) washers and six (6) dryers was able to accommodate thirty (30) loads of laundry every three (3) hours. Hundreds of Westminster residents were able to utilize the Mobile Laundry Service
