Everyone deserves a hot shower and a clean set of clothes. Our Hygiene Office & Laundry program does far more than that. In addition to the laundry and shower facilities available to clients accessing overnight services and also to those who just seek support during the day, we provide the full spectrum of hygiene products. Soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, tampons, shaving cream, razors, toothpaste, toothbrushes. All can be found in our Hygiene Office. And after our clients have had a shower, stocked up on a razor and a tooth brush, and put on a clean set of clothes, they may even stay to get a haircut. Exceptionally kind hair dressers and stylists from the community volunteer their time to come to the Calgary Drop-In Centre’s Hygiene Office.

I am pretty impressed with the service provided by ESS especially when I consider the various circumstances beyond your control that you may have to contend with! It is a huge relief to NOT spend my time completing a bunch of forms every time I need casual labour or spend my money paying an employment service; I could not afford to do that!
What is really amazing to me is that is every bit as effective, and even more efficient in providing casual labour than the employment services that charge!
