There are many ways Skagit Connections plans to "Do Justly". As a community non-profit organization, we look at the present needs and determined that we will lean into this next year focusing on the obvious needs we feel the shower trailer can address. Here are a couple of ideas to help you understand our mission as an organization.
Covid 19 has proven to amplify the need for showers as many organizations, that once provided showers to our unsheltered neighbors, have stepped down due to the rigorous cleaning required and risk to other clients. Skagit Connections recognizes the need and has worked to ensure showers would be available in our county.
As a community crisis or emergency occurs, the shower trailer may be needed to help serve the community or event. In that occasion, the trailer may be unavailable to Skagit County guests. We apologize in advance if this occurs, however; some of the donated money that purchased the trailer requires we provide needed assistance when necessary.
As part of our "Do Justly" each day we will treat every individual with respect and dignity. As part of that, safety will be one of our highest values. Therefore; in value and respect to our guests, volunteers, and even our donors we cannot tolerate any behavior that would put any person or persons at risk of harm or danger. This is our one rule.
