New CleanStart Mobile Hygiene Unit Serving Fremont’s Homeless Population


On September 17, the City of Fremont officially launched the CleanStart Mobile Hygiene Program with the City of Newark, Alameda County, and many community partners. The program features a new CleanStart Mobile Hygiene Unit that provides much-needed shower and laundry services to the local homeless population. These basic services will help users keep themselves and their clothing clean, a major obstacle for those looking to get and keep a job and participate in society.

The CleanStart Mobile Hygiene Unit is a 50-foot truck and trailer that is fitted with two full bathrooms and showers, including one that is ADA accessible, and three washer/dryer units. The unit is providing services in coordination with existing food and clothing programs as it rotates to different areas in the city each weekday. Each service site is open for 3 to 4 hours. The cost of the Mobile Hygiene unit, funded through Alameda County, was $125,000.

To learn more details on this program, including the unit’s schedule and location, please visit Clean Start.
