Here’s your chance to help at the Community Showers!

Bozeman United Methodist Church is partnered with several non-profit organizations and churches to operate the Shower Program through the Human Resources Development Council (HRDC).  This Shower Program is offered on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 9:00-11:00 AM to anyone wanting  a free, clean, and safe place to bathe.  Although the Warming Center Shelter is only open during the winter months, the Shower Program operates year-round.  BUMC is responsible for the 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month. 
 
Two showers and two restrooms are available for the guests on a first-come basis.  Our guests receive a token for 8 minutes of hot water, and can continue to use the facilities for a total of 20 minutes.   In addition to shower facilities, a sock exchange and day storage are also available.  The number of men and women served per day can vary from 6-12.
 
Our BUMC team has two trained shower captains and eight volunteers.  We are required to have two people present to open the doors to guests, many of whom enjoy visiting and socializing after their showers.   Our team also operates the laundry facilities at the Warming Center which BUMC helped to purchase.  We encourage you to consider volunteering your time to this local mission and we welcome new volunteers to our mission team.
