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.
The MHC program runs on the following schedule:
Downtown (7th/IH35) 9.30AM-1.30PM Monday - Friday
University United Methodist Church (24th and Guadalupe) Tuesday-Friday 9:30AM-2:30PM
Burnet Location CLOSED
Sunrise Church (Ben White and Menchaca) 8:00AM-11:30AM Monday – Friday
Esperanza Community (780 Hwy 183 S) 7AM-5PM Monday - Friday, 12PM - 5PM Sat/Sun
