Street Team Movement has provided laundry services, clothing and hygiene products for the homeless for almost 3 years. We have provided thousands of personal, dental and femenine hygiene products and have washed almost 15,000 loads of laundry, investing over $40,000 into the program--all without fundraising.
But there’s a problem...
Our current programs keep us grounded in a handful of locations. We begin to reach the same individuals over and over, when we know that Street Team Movement can do more. We can provide hygiene and additial services to more that are living outdoors.
What we are doing about it
We have invested funds into purchasing a truck which we will use to convert into a Mobile Hygiene Unit. This will allow us to drive to reach the homeless living in the wooded areas that are typically outside of our reach. Along with hygiene items, we will provide a multitude of services including laundry services, clothing, healthcare, heaircuts and job services. We will be able to provide hygiene and additional services to those that are homeless not only in Central Florida, but we will continue to purchase more trucks and deploy them wherever they are needed.
And how it’s going to change the world!
The concept of providing Hyiene on a mobile level can be used not only here in Orlando, but ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD where hygenic relief is needed.
You can join us
We critically need to raise funds for a Mobile Hygiene Unit. This mobile hygiene unit will distribute hygiene products to the homeless. The Mobile Hygiene Unit will be loaded with personal, dental and feminine hygiene items as well as clothes and shoes. Our goal is to raise $20,000 which will allow us to continue our efforts providing laundry to the homeless as well as fund a Mobile Hygiene Unit for a year.
The 3 tents in the pictures will be staffed by our partners and providing services as well:
- Health screenings and general physicals
- Haircuts and occasionally we will have massages and nail care
- Job services (interview practice, resume building, editing and printing and MORE)
