Mobile Hygiene Clinic

What It Is

The Mobile Hygiene Clinic (MHC) is comprised of a fleet of shower trailers that deliver essential services directly to Austin’s homeless population. What started as one shower trailer (affectionately known as the Box of Rain) moving around town daily has grown to a  fleet of trailers that offer hygiene facilities and supplies daily in several locations.

The MHC also continues to apply TOOF’s proven Workforce First employment model: It is run by a team of people experiencing homelessness who are paid $15/hr to oversee and execute operations.


Please note that all our locations ASIDE from Esperanza will be closed 12/23-25 and 12/31-1/1. Esperanza showers will run through holidays uninterrupted.
