"ENDING HOMELESSNESS ONE LOAD AT A TIME"
We are Community Suds, a 501(c)3 nonprofit with a mission to end hygiene and sanitation hardships for people experiencing homelessness. We currently implement two programs within our organization to help elevate hygiene routines for the unhoused in our communities.
Our Suds Essentials Program provides sustainable resources to help establish daily hygiene routines. Achieving this goal will help restore dignity to a marginalized group, increase access to mental and physical well-being, and provide a pathway to ending homelessness in our communities. Through our Laundry Care program, we partner with local laundromats to provide access to washers and dryers at no cost for the unsheltered.
To date, Community Suds has distributed over 300 toiletry bags, 980 pairs of socks, and 500+ feminine hygiene products throughout the Cleveland, OH community.
In 2021, Community Suds was able to raise $28,100 in funding through grant awards and fundraising which supported our Cleveland based programs.
From assembly and distribution of our toiletry bags, to volunteered professional services, our volunteers have donated 100+ hours of their time to Community Suds
