Where can I take a Shower? - by Stephanie Thomas

It's something we take for granted. We get up in the morning and take a shower. If we need to wash our hands we go to the
sink. If we want to wash our clothes we put them in the wash. For people living on the street and in tents, getting clean
and staying clean is not so easy. Fortunately, in Greensboro, we have the Interactive Resource Center on Washington Street.
For people who are homeless, being able to go there to take a shower and wash clothes is a real blessing. Unfortunately, for
people who live away from downtown, it can be difficult for them to get to the IRC, especially on a daily basis. In California,
Doniece Sandoval, came up with a solution: She turned retired city buses into mobile shower units.
