One of the most significant challenges for people without permanent housing is the need for clean clothing. Research has identified that access to laundry services is one of the highest unmet needs in the community for the homeless population. Dirty clothes is a barrier getting and maintaining a job, finding an apartment, or attending school (primary, secondary or higher education).
Bayaud Enterprises, in 2016 converted one of its commercial delivery trucks to serve as a mobile laundry truck complete with commercial grade washers and dryers. In 2017 a second truck was launched.
In the first year nearly 3,000 loads of laundry was processed and more than 300 days of training and employment were provided on the truck for individuals experiencing extreme poverty and/or homelessness.
