OROVILLE, Calif. - The city of Oroville has approved funding for the "Haven of Hope on Wheels" Project, which provides shower and laundry services for the homeless.
The city approved $175,000 that will go to the project. It will provide a free, mobile service to the homeless so that they can bathe and do laundry.
"We are going to go to sites that we are directed to and we will work in conjunction with the city and other service providers to see where the greatest need is," said Kevin Thompson, CEO of the Oroville Southside Community Improvement Association. "We won't just show up at someone's business. It's a process. It's a contractual process."
According to the latest Butte County statistics, there are almost 1,100 homeless living in Butte County.
