More on Laundry Love


Laundry Love is designed for everyday people. We believe this initiative answers the universal question of "What can we do?" when people come in contact with poverty and homelessness on a local level. Faith communities, students, neighbors, friends, partnering organizations and local social service agencies can start a Laundry Love location in their communities by utilizing the simple, open, collaborative and relational focus this initiative offers.
