Council District 12 Raising Funds for the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission's Mobile Shower Unit
Posted by Councilmember Englander on November 23, 2016 at 12:02 PM
My office is raising funds for the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission's Rescue SOS Second Mobile Shower Unit that will service ther San Fernando Valley. The San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission is dedicated to providing homeless men, women, children, and families the opportunity to obtain food, shelter, basic life necessities, and the chance to rebuild a foundation for individual and family restoration.
The Rescue Mission’s Rescue SOS Team (Survival Outreach Services) helps individuals and families to meet basic, life-essential needs and serves as a link to social services in the community, including the organization's own emergency shelter, residential substance abuse recovery, and transitional housing programs.
Throughout the week, the Rescue SOS Team truck travels to different places within the San Fernando Valley and is equipped with a mobile shower unit, hot nutritious food, clothing, and hygiene items for distribution.
Because there is only one mobile shower unit to service the entire San Fernando Valley, the Rescue SOS Team is limited to providing showers for only 20% of the 1,500 men, women, and children they serve and accommodate each month. This is where our community can help!
Our project goal is to raise $17,000 dollars to provide the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission - Rescue SOS program with a second mobile shower unit so that they can reach out and care for more families every day. Our San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission - Rescue SOS Mobile Shower Project is more than a new mobile shower, it's a way to bring resources and dignity to those that need a clean start.
