The Hub of Hope's laundry services help homeless people feel 'normal' again

In Philadelphia, the Hub of Hope offers free shower and laundry services for people experiencing homelessness. The service, while acknowledging it won’t solve chronic housing insecurity, does help improve quality of life and health and served over 600 individuals and churned over 2,000 loads of laundry. Other Philadelphia shelters and service centers are starting to offer similar services with funding from local nonprofits.
