Each year the Corner Shower and Laundry will provide:
clean loads of laundry
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
