WashPod

WashPod provides off-the-grid and transportable laundry and shower facilities to the previously houseless population. Currently, there are communities of small pods around Portland, Oregon, which provide shelter for the previously houseless while they search for jobs and homes. However, the lack of laundry facilities often makes it difficult for members to make themselves presentable for job interviews and make a good impression in the world. Poor hygiene might impose a bad impression onto an employer, causing an otherwise qualified community member to lose a great opportunity. WashPod seeks to remove that negative factor by allowing members to easily clean themselves and their clothes. WashPod will be installed at Right 2 Dream Too (R2D2), a non-profit organization that provides a place for Portland's unhoused community to sleep.
