BENEFITING: CIVITAS PLUS INC
Las Duchas (The Showers) opened on October 2001 in La Perla, an important historical community in Old San Juan. Las Duchas runs from a humble wooden house in front of the ocean and operates 100% on voluntary service, donations and lots of love and compassion. It is based on a very simple philosophy of offering people without shelter the opportunity to feel good by taking a shower, having some food, changing into clean clothing and having a good conversation everyday.
At Las Duchas everyone is welcome, unconditionally, to share in peaceful communion with other people without shelter and volunteers.
14 years in front of the ocean has really hit hard Las Duchas structure. The ceiling fell on part of the house, the washer works on and off, the dryer is not drying and the showers need to be fixed. All profits will go to purchasing new washer/dryer and stocking up on groceries and detergent.
