ENDING HOMELESSNESS ONE MAGAZINE AT A TIME
WE PRINT SO OTHERS CAN EARN
A SELF-HELP MODEL FOR THE SOON TO BE FORMERLY HOMELESS
The Lowcountry Herald is a "street newspaper" that helps our neighbors experiencing homelessness or extreme poverty earn money. We give them our magazine for free, they distribute it to the public and take cash donations, which they keep. In this way, they earn an income. This has the advantage of giving them a way to make money that doesn’t depend on their mental state, background, education, criminal record, employment history, housing status or any of the other factors that keep the homeless from working. We work on a self-help model so that the homeless can work their way off the street.
MOBILE SHOWER INITIATIVE
HSS Bubbles: Delivering a Fresh Start
Many homeless in the Lowcountry lack access to regular showers. This impacts their health, morale, ability to interact with society, and ability to get jobs. A solution that is within our power is to outfit a vehicle with a functioning showers and toilet and make it available for use at various locations in the community, providing shower services at no or low cost to the user.
In order to get HSS Bubbles rolling and ready for the summer shower season, we need donations of hygiene kit and bath items, shift volunteers, and location hosts. Click the link below to learn how you can get involved and become part of the mobile shower legacy!
