Urban Rest Stops

I have been thinking that this would be awesome for the homeless since they are banned from sleeping outside. They have limited places to keep their possessions. They have limited places to shower and use bathrooms. If I could help, I would find an efficient way to store personal belongs, a public restroom which included showers.

Saint Frances has an efficient way to exchange clothing, do chores twice a day. You can shower and use the restrooms too! This is a day shelter but most day shelters are strategically placed to keep the homeless away from most people. A traveling shower and restroom on certain days would make it more convenient. The traveling laundry trucks are the most ingenious idea I have heard of. What if there were a traveling restroom and shower during those days too, then the homeless could get all of those basic needs met.

I have found that people are scared of the homeless, but they do not understand that most of them have mental issues which cause them to not bath or work on their conditions. Some will recognize their issues and start to work on them as they are on their way to not being homeless but most will stay homeless because they can not see what is happening to them.

I hope for the homeless sake that they may get some urban rest stops to help them deal with their situation. Please comment with your thoughts!

I am an older woman inspired to not give up due to life struggles and to strive in everything I do to achieve my goals. I work from home with creating different art pieces. Helping the homeless community in Denver is important to me as well. I like being creative and posting on my blogging about experiences, new information, and lessons learned. I am motivated to put information on the web hoping it will help others. I have two beautiful girls that are grown now and I hope they will be the women I know that is within them. I love technology and the outdoors. I am improving my health to live as long as possible. Life is worth living and living to the fullest.
