It might not seem to be the case on the surface, but easy access to washers/dryers is a necessary component to any successful shelter. Free use of washers/dryers ensures our families have access to clean clothes. Clean clothes ensures our families are looking their best at school, their jobs, interviews, and in addition just makes our families feel better.
At Family Promise we have four washers, and four dryers for families to use. With age, our washers/dryers have become a little less reliable over the years. Fortunately, the Crestlea Foundation provided us a grant to replace all of our washers/dryers with brand new industrial grade washers!
