Assist At A Shower Site


Assist At A Shower Site

Shower Power strives to address the widespread need for clean personal hygiene services in New York City by coordinating a citywide effort to increase access to shower facilities and products until there are convenient, safe and consistently available resources in every borough.

WHAT: Shower Site Volunteers are needed to help guide guests through the shower site, including where to securely leave their belonging, how to get items like clothing and hygiene products, when and where to shower, among other things. Volunteers will be outside and on their feet for the duration of their shift on site.

WHEN: The showers are open Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

WHERE: 318 W 48th Street.

TO APPLY: Visit to sign up for one shift or multiple shifts over time.

*This is not a New York Cares project*


Shower Power's mission is to increase access to crucial hygiene and self-care resources for people experiencing homelessness and the organizations who work with them.
