LavaLove®, a 29’ customized all-weather, 3-unit shower-toilet mobile hygiene trailer provides full services to sheltered and unsheltered homeless guests, restoring dignity in those overlooked solely based on their current housing status, bringing visibility to those “invisible” within the community. LavaLove® will provide over 8,000 showers per year delivering access to clean water and hot showers. We will rapidly expand providing shower trailers in Morristown, NJ (Morris County), Newark, NJ (Essex County), New York City, NY, Paterson, NJ (Passaic County), Phillipsburg, NJ (Warren County), Trenton, NJ (Mercer County), and Atlantic City, NJ (Atlantic County). As we grow support of additional partners and legislators, we will roll out additional trailer deployments to cover every county in New Jersey and New York.
