Housing & Homelessness
Shower Access Service - Nillumbik
This service provides free access to showers for people in our communities who are homeless, couch surfing, or who don’t have a permanent place to live. Having regular access to showers is important for a person’s health, hygiene and dignity, and can also significantly improve feelings of self-confidence and self-worth.
