CA nonprofit Project WeHOPE proposes "Dignity on Wheels" service to bring shower and laundry facilities to Palo Alto homeless.
"People who are homeless in Palo Alto and East Palo Alto could soon have free showers and laundry services through a new initiative that would bring the facilities to them. The mobile Dignity On Wheels service would include showers, restrooms, washers and dryers in a trailer that would visit rotating shelters at local churches, including Palo Alto's 15-bed Hotel de Zink. The effort is being undertaken by East Palo Alto's Project WeHOPE, which also runs a shelter that serves 58 homeless citizens in East Palo Alto and Palo Alto, said Pastor Paul Bains, the nonprofit's president and founder." -- Sue Dremann, Palo Alto Weekly
