Showered With Love is an initiative by Kelly Terrien, a local business owner and Veteran. She recently formed Showered With Love, Inc. a 501(c) 3 nonprofit. The idea of mobile hygiene is not a new one, but this is the first time it is being brought to Colorado Springs.

The vision of Showered With Love is to provide people a sense of dignity and hope by providing access to basic hygiene services: soap, clean water, a safe toilet/shower facility, via a mobile trailer unit. The intention is to provide services to those individuals who lack access to toilets and to bathing regularly. Showered With Love provides people opportunities to take a shower, shave, brush their teeth, and use the restroom. The basics for self-care. 

Our goal is to purchase two trailers. One trailer, outfitted with 3 showers, sinks, and restrooms, will travel daily/weekly to participating support organization facilities. This trailer has been purchased and delivered. The second trailer will contain 8 showers and sinks and will be placed at a local non-profit agency site, allowing Showered With Love to provide services on a full time basis.

All operations will be done in partnership with Showered With Love and a host organization. Showered With Love will not attend any event or outreach without the support of at least one partner organization. For example, every Tuesday the mobile hygiene trailer will be at West Side Cares from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.; every Thursday the trailer will be located at Grace Church from 1 – 3 p.m., etc. During these times, basic hygiene services will be offered to the homeless community.

Showered With Love volunteers are actively seeking donations to purchase the additional trailer, a truck to pull the 3 stall trailer, towels, hygiene products, cleaning supplies, other toiletries, and ongoing operational support.
