It all started when…
a diverse group of volunteers helping out at Manna Community Meals saw an opportunity to provide additional services to the Manna Meal guests. This group of volunteers joined together to create the vision of providing those in need with a means to a fresh start. Corner Shower and Laundry was “born” and quickly developed a mission to build and operate clean and safe shower and laundry facilities and services where the homeless and others in need in our community can shower and launder their clothes.
The Corner Shower and Laundry"s Board of Directors meets regularly to develop strategy for fundraising and oversee ongoing operations. We have been blessed to have a number of volunteers and donors who have participated in meetings and events and/or provided generous donations – both monetary and in services or goods. In addition to various volunteer opportunities, we also welcome participation in our meetings.
Two organizations that are integral to Corner Shower and Laundry: St Peter’s Episcopal Church Detroit and Manna Community Meals.
