Fishline to Launch “Fresh Start”, A Mobile Shower Service on October 5

Announcements, News

Fishline Food Bank & Comprehensive Services is excited to announce Fresh Start, a mobile shower program for our unsheltered community members who do not have access to a shower. Fresh Start aims to promote the physical, emotional, and mental health of North Kitsap County’s most vulnerable individuals. “Unsheltered people are exposed to life-threatening illness every day, including COVID-19,” says Lauren Beck, Fresh Start Program Manager. “This program will help Fishline expand its safety net to address this emergent need at this unprecedented time.”

“Access to a shower is the most requested service by our unsheltered community members. We are honored to be able to provide this basic human service. We hope to create relationships and establish trust that supports our mission to provide food, emergency services and resources to transform lives,” says Sandra Allen, Client Services Manager.

Fishline is grateful to our community partners Kitsap Rescue Mission, the City of Poulsbo, Clear Creek RV, and Integrity Roofing who are supporting us in this program.

Community members in need can sign up for a shower by emailing casemgr@fishlinehelps.org or calling 360-779-5190. Fishline will provide towels, hygiene products, clothing, laundry change and soap, and access to additional support services.
