CHANDLER – The minds behind the Chandler Clean Machine knew the city’s homeless often do not have the means to take care of their hygiene needs. So the volunteers found a way to bring the bathroom and laundry room out of the house. The Interfaith Homeless Emergency Lodging Program (I-HELP), with the help of McCarthy Building Companies and the City of Chandler, converted an old trailer into a mobile shower and laundry unit for the homeless to use.
