Mobile Laundry

Our goal is to help homeless people, through our initiative, to find their Ithaca. We decided to create a laundry service in order to raise the hygiene standards of the homeless, restore their self esteem and dignity and create new opportunities for them.
The mobile nature of our service allows us to maintain low costs because we are free from paying rents and similar operational costs. Moreover, we can approach and serve more homeless people and people who are often disinclined to leave their spots.
The Laundry service operates in four specific areas of the city, both discrete and well known.  Our stable weekly schedule is communicated to our beneficiaries and changes depending on the season.
Our team collects clothes from each beneficiary and orders them. The clothes are washed and then dried, before being returned.  Every wash and dry takes approximately 1 hour.

Ithaca has partnered with a number of other NGOs, which operate at our locations and provide alternate services to beneficiaries whilst they wait for their washing to finish, such as food, medical care and counselling.
