Every night, homeless guests at Cityeam San Jose are provided with food, a hot shower, toiletries, clean clothes and pajamas, and a warm bed. Cityteam is seeing more and more men coming to the shelter because of the poor economy and they have no where else to go. The shelter provides over 3,500 showers each month and over 42,000 hot showers a year. Their showers are nearly 20 years old and falling apart. Only eight of their showers are barely working and the floor is dangerously smooth. Also many of the sinks and toilets are not fully working. As you can see by the photos, this area of the shelter is in desperate need of an extreme makeover in order to provide an area of dignity and privacy for the homeless men to take a safe hot shower and change clothes. A hot shower can make someone feel clean and transformed.
Because of the poor economy, Cityteam is on a very tight budget to pay their normal expenses each day. They are unable to afford repairing the showers at this time. This renovation is going to make a huge impact in the lives of the homeless every night of the year.
