Our Mission

To give people a fresh start by providing showers and laundry service.

Have you ever gone without showering for more than a couple days?  Imagine weeks and months at a time without that luxury.  Imagine not having a safe place in which to wash up, or not having a clean change of clothes.  
In January 2015, a diverse group of metro Detroiters came together to found Corner Shower and Laundry where mostly homeless guest can have that safe place, and their dignity, as they shower and do laundry.  

Please join us in this mission.

Project Overview



Corner Shower and Laundry has completed Phase 1 of construction.  Phase 1 included the internal demolition and preparation of the facilities, concrete installation, boiler purchase and installation, rough electrical and plumbing and rough framing of the facilities.   

Commercial Laundry & Supportive Employment

Our long range plans include providing a supportive employment program for our guests when we launch commercial laundry services.  This will provide a revenue stream for operations.  Nearby, Michigan Avenue businesses such as Slow’s BBQ have already expressed interest in the service.

The shower and laundry for homeless guests includes: 

  • Reception area with lavatory

  • Shower facility with 4 private shower stalls, 3 sink stations and a lavatory

  • Laundry facility with 3 washers and dryers and counters for folding

“[True] righteousness is one who believes in god, the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who] establishes prayer and gives charity; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous."

Surat Al-Baqarah 2:177
