<<First Name>>,

Our Shower Trailer Program (the only one of its kind in Worcester) is a critical service we provide. The shower trailer is available to guests at Hotel Grace, as well as to anyone in need of a hot shower, Mon.–Fri., 9:00 am–1:00 pm. Along with safe, consistent shelter and a hot meal—a hot shower can provide dignity and hope to someone who's living on the streets.
Monday, March 22 was World Water Day, a day to reflect upon the value of our most vital resource, water. There are places in the world where water is increasingly scarce. Limited access to water affects those who experience homelessness right here in Worcester. Imagine how hopeless you might feel without clean drinking water or hot water for a shower.

All Net of Compassion programs are focused on restoring hope by working to alleviate homelessness, poverty, and food insecurity. Operating our Shower Trailer Program is an important part of that. Your gift to our April Showers fundraiser will help keep the shower trailer in operation.
A hot shower, soap and shampoo, a fresh towel and a change of clothes—these help restore the dignity of each guest at Hotel Grace.  These are small steps to helping restore hope.

Hotel Grace will be open until May 15

The City of Worcester has asked Hotel Grace to remain open until mid-May. This extension beyond our traditional March closing is of significant benefit to the at-risk people we serve. Although it has been a challenge to operate 24/7 with almost fifty guests each night, we remain committed to providing a hot meal and a warm bed to each of our guests. That consistency is what makes our programs so impactful.

That is why we've launched our April Showers fundraiser. We're raising money so we can continue to offer hot showers through April and beyond. If you’re able to contribute $10, it would be deeply appreciated. Thank you for your continued support!
