Mobile Showers Make A Difference For North Bay Communities


For many people, a proper shower is often a luxury. And that doesn't just apply to the homeless; there are droves of other people who live without access to proper bathing facilities. Case in point: the 'Anchor-Outs' of Richardson Bay. The term refers to people who live and work on boats in the Bay, which abuts Sausalito and Marin County. Hundreds of people who didn't have regular access to showers--until now.

The people at Marin Mobile Care saw a need, and they've taken steps to address it. Recently, Sausalito became the third city to offer free showers through MMC, joining nearby cities of Novato and San Rafael. From all indications, the program is a great success--and the effect on the participants has been remarkable.

Just ask Drew Warner, who has been using the program regularly since December: “I’m much more motivated now than I was a couple hours ago,” Warner said after a bracing shower. “This is a big help on how the course of my day goes.”
