Hygiene4All is a bathroom, washing, basic first aid, bedding & clothing exchange, and trash removal hospitality hub. It is designed and run by members of the houseless community. Attendants are trained in de-escalation, trauma-informed harm reduction, and fostering a culture of respect, acceptance, and welcome of all community members, unhoused and housed.
Portland's unsheltered residents are routinely denied access to hygiene, sanitation, & safety services. Hygine4All's hygiene hub addresses these inequities by providing a safe, dignified place where all Portlanders may access:
- 2 ADA Toilets & a Washing Station
- A Bedding & Clothing Exchange
- Trash & Recycling Pick-up
- Trauma-Informed First Aid & Community
Our hub offers our unsheltered neighbors low barrier jobs, as well as leadership, and problem-solving opportunities. Through houseless led advocacy, outreach, and educational programming we additionally connect those living outside to Portland's businesses, neighborhoods, and policymakers.
Portland, Oregon is facing a public and civic health crisis! Unsheltered individuals' inability to utilize hygiene and sanitation services contributes to a number of personal and community-wide issues, including, public health risks trauma and mental health struggles, vilification, discrimination, legal and extrajudicial punishment.
We can mitigate these problems with constructive solutions providing access to water, toilets, waste disposal, and safety-critical for survival and human dignity.
