ABOUT COMMUNITY SUDS
WHO WE SERVE
We serve the unhoused/unsheltered residents in both the Northeast Ohio and Southern California communities. We partner with local organizations and companies to help alleviate hygiene hardships associated with homelessness and poverty.
The Suds Essentials program provides hygiene products to the unsheltered members of our community. These are sustainably sourced, eco-friendly kits that promote healthy daily hygiene habits for our members. Our kits contain products or tools that will help alleviate hygiene hardships, while also being accessible and easy to travel with.
The purpose of the laundry care program is to give our members access to laundry facilities. Through partnerships with local laundromats we are able to provide access to washers, dryers, and laundry cleaning products free of charge to our members on a monthly basis.
Through this program we partner and collaborate with other local nonprofit organizations that serve people experiencing homelessness. We provide laundry care and toiletry products to the members already being serve within these organizations. The goal of this program is to build relationships within the communities we serve in order to have a greater impact at ending homelessness in our society.
Community Suds was developed and founded in April 2020 by Briana Swanson and Riya Foster, two friends who were passionate about uplifting and serving a community that they loved. During the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic the importance of health and hygiene was greater than ever, but Briana and Riya realized unhoused residents in their communities were largely excluded from the conversation. They put their resources together and founded an organization that prioritized their communities most vulnerable residents and launched Community Suds Inc.
