About Project Refresh

Founded in July of 2020, Project Refresh, Inc. is a non-profit organization that believes that access to a refreshing shower is a basic human right that no one should be denied. The vision behind Project Refresh was inspired by a similar organization working towards providing mobile showers to those in need in Houston, TX (Moving Waters).

As a group of healthcare workers who have witnessed the effect that a shower has on an individual’s overall well-being and health, coupled with the fact that there are currently limited resources available in Augusta, GA that allow those in need access to a shower, it quickly became our mission to bring a mobile shower unit to several locations in the downtown Augusta area that would allow individuals to be afforded a refreshing shower, improving not only their hygiene but their dignity as well.  Our vision extends beyond simply providing a shower. We hope to establish partnerships with other organizations that serve the homeless population of Augusta, connect these individuals with resources that would ultimately improve one’s overall quality of life, and significantly reduce the homeless population of Augusta.
