PUEBLO, Colo. — Pueblo Cooperative Care has released a new resource to help those who are in need of cleaning themselves to have access to free mobile showers.

The program will offer these showers alongside several other resources, including haircuts and other grooming, clothes, and food.

"It's such a tremendous, great first step. It gives them dignity. It gives them, it changes their confidence, they're smiling. It helps them. Some people have jobs so they can get to work. Some go to school and it just changes their whole attitude throughout the day," said Wayne Brown of Pueblo Cooperative Care.

The showers will have rotating locations and any information regarding their position can be found on the Pueblo Cooperative Care Facebook.

The showers will be available every Monday and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. with the exception of holidays.
