There are more and more places to find safe hygiene options and showers in Los Angeles, including….
- The Saban Community Clinic’s Hollywood-Wilshire location provides free access to showers on a walk-in basis; individuals are provided socks, underwear, and toiletries.
- Lava Mae (Showers on Wheels) is another great option for getting a shower in L.A. – originally a San Francisco effort, there is now Monday to Friday availability in areas including DTLA, Venice Beach, Inglewood, South Central, and West L.A. Most times are before 1:00 P.M. so be sure to get there early!
- The ReFresh Spot in Downtown L.A. reopened in September 2018; the space contains three trailers with showers, sinks, toilets, washers, and dryers. Run by the Skid Row Community Improvement Coalition, this hygiene station is located at 557 Crocker St, Los Angeles, CA 90013, USA.
