What It Is

The Mobile Hygiene Clinic delivers humanitarian relief directly to Austin’s homeless population in the form of mobile showers and hygiene materials. The idea was conceived as a  response to the COVID-19 pandemic, but has flourished into a powerful outreach tool to potential clients for other TOOF programming. By meeting people where they’re at and offering basic needs, MHC provides a valuable entry point into TOOF’s array of programs for people who have not already engaged in homeless services. 

The Mobile Hygiene Clinic applies TOOF’s proven Workforce First employment model: Each location is run by a team of people experiencing homelessness who are paid $20 an hour to oversee and execute operations.
