The Valley Breeze: Showers and services available for homeless at Barton Street location

PAWTUCKET - The city's homeless residents once again have a place to go for a warm shower, a haircut, and more, now on Barton Street, thanks to two separate organizations.

Officials last Thursday kicked off the city's new portable shower location at 345 Barton St. On Tuesdays, from 9 a.m. to noon, Peter Kelleher, of Massachusetts-based Support the Soupman Corp., will have his mobile showers set up on site, while on Thursday mornings, starting this week, House of Hope CDC will have one of itsShower to Empower mobile units at the same location.

Kelleher brought his mobile showers to Pawtucket for the first time on Sept. 12, and approximately 12 to 20 people used the showers each week for the first two weeks, according to Support the Soupman's Operations Manager Chris Gewlas.
