Shower Ministry

In the heart of Santa Clara County, a beacon of hope shines bright every Wednesday evening from 6pm to 9pm-ish at Our Lady of Refuge off Lucretia on the Eastside of San Jose. The Holy Spirit Shower Ministry is dedicated to providing showers and essential support to individuals experiencing homelessness. This article invites you to join us in making a difference in the lives of these vulnerable members of our community.

Volunteer Opportunities

At the Holy Spirit Shower Ministry, we believe that everyone deserves access to basic hygiene and human dignity. This is why we offer various volunteer opportunities to accommodate different schedules and preferences. By contributing your time and effort, you can be a part of the solution to one of the most pressing issues in our community.

Duties and Responsibilities

  • Setting up and Cleaning Showers: Ensuring a clean and safe environment for our guests is of utmost importance. Volunteers will help with the setup and maintenance of shower stations.

  • Serving Food: Providing nourishment to those in need is a fundamental way we show care and support. Volunteers may assist in serving meals to our guests.

  • Clothing Distribution: Helping individuals select clean, comfortable clothing can be a transformative experience. Volunteers play a crucial role in our clothing distribution efforts.

  • Hygiene Kits: Distributing hygiene kits helps individuals maintain their health and dignity. Volunteers will assist in assembling and distributing these essential kits.

  • Engaging with Guests: Sometimes, a friendly conversation can make all the difference. Volunteers are encouraged to interact with our guests, offering them companionship and kindness.

Flexibility in Commitment

We understand that everyone has different schedules and commitments. You can volunteer as little as once or twice a month, allowing you to contribute meaningfully without overextending yourself.

Witnessing Transformation

There’s a remarkable sense of fulfillment in witnessing the transformation of individuals who come to us worn out and dirty, and leave clean, fed, and loved. By volunteering with the Holy Spirit Shower Ministry, you play a vital role in this process of empowerment and renewal.
