What is ShowerUp?
Mobile Showers for the Homeless of Nashville
In the Nashville area, there are about 4,000 homeless men, women and children who often go weeks and months without a roof over their heads and that means no access to a shower, basic hygiene or attention to personal care. While there are organizations and resources available to serve a variety of needs, there are fewer than a dozen shower heads available to them.
Less than a dozen shower heads for 4,000 people.
ShowerUp is able to pull up and provide a hot shower, clean towels, soap, shampoo, shaving cream and razors and things that most of us take for granted. More than that though, our team of volunteers is able to engage in conversation, build relationships, demonstrate love, and create a truly caring environment.
ShowerUp also provides an excellent volunteer experience. Serving opportunities are available for every level of experience and comfort. Whether it's driving the truck and preparing for service, handing out shower supplies, cleaning, hosting, or just being there with a friendly smile and hug, Shower Up is designed to utilize volunteers with minimal training and maximum involvement.

Inside the ShowerUp mobile shower unit, guests will find a private, comfortable room with a clean shower and sink with plenty of hot water and whatever they need to Shower Up!
The ShowerUp truck is outfitted with 3 specially-designed shower and sink units to maximize space, provide a pleasant experience and facilitate ease of cleaning.
The truck has tankless water heaters and carries a generator to supply electric power for lights and fans.
The ShowerUp Truck
The ShowerUp truck is a transformed box truck with a curb-side entrance and a rear roll-up door.
Because of it's design, it doesn't require special licensing to drive.
Because of its smaller profile, ShowerUp can literally, pull up on city streets, parking lots, driveways, etc. and serve in nearly any location.
