The Shower of Hope

Every Wednesday a mobile shower will be available at West Adams Church of Christ. Reverend Raymond Phillips once again has continued to provide the needed services to the unsheltered population living on the streets and in our community.

4959 W Adams Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90016
Every Wednesday from 10 am to 2 pm

“It is no news that we are in a Homelessness Crisis and that Los Angeles has over 59,000 people are affected. Of this population, 44,000 are unsheltered and on the street with no access to basic hygiene, including showers. A critical challenge for these individuals is not having the mobility to access showers as well as other resources.”
