Hygiene Station

Buy “Handwarmer Blend” coffee; support Hygiene Station!


In October 2020, SJAC launched a Hygiene Station to support our unhoused neighbor’s during the COVID-19 pandemic. We need your help to continue to expand open hours and sustain the project as winter approaches and the COVID-19 pandemic rages on.

The pandemic has greatly reduced public restroom availability, and many experiencing houselessness are left with few options of places to wash their hands, use the restroom and carry out their most basic hygiene needs. The hygiene station at SJAC helps to provide much needed community hygiene resources, including an outdoor hand washing station, open hours for bathroom access , informational flyers and personal hygiene supplies. The program compensates unhoused and formerly unhoused community members for their time maintaining the space, providing a modest supplemental income during a time of economic crisis.

Community partners have come together to help with this project including Friends of Trees, Old Time Coffee Roasters, Right 2 Survive, Stop the Sweeps PDX, Sisters of the Road, Bonneville Environmental Foundation, Keys, Beats, Bars, Northwest Alliance for Alternative Media and Education and Reclaim, Remain, Rebuild.
