A place to wash and restore your dignity and self-respect.

Being able to wash and wear clean clothes is an important right. Personal care is essential for maintaining one’s dignity, both in terms of self-respect and interpersonal relationships.

OSF offers men and women in difficulty the chance to take a hot shower, giving them a set of clean underwear on each occasion. Managed with the support of volunteers, this is a fundamental service particularly for those who have no fixed abode and live on the streets.
