A shower, where can I get a Hot shower?
This is the question that the homeless men & women of Tampa Bay search for the answer every minute, every hour, and every day with everything else they have to deal with.
I have the opportunity and the honor to serve the homeless for many years and I still serve them today.
A young lady, one day approach the desk at the outreach center where I serve.
Her hair and clothes was a little dirty, her face was a little cleaner than her hair and clothes, there was dirty under her small finger nails and she had an unpleasant smell to her body.
I ask her “How can I help you”? She replied in a soft baby like voice “A shower, where can I get a Hot shower”? I have heard a lot of request for clothing, hygiene items etc…. but, her requests strike me to my core, to think that a female had no way to refresh herself from day to day. I could not get her words out of my mind.
But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? 1John 3:17 (NKJV).
So that started my search for a solution to this basic need and to find that solution quickly. That is how the concept of Mrbubblez Inc. was born (portable showers for the homeless). I went into pray about the need of others; God gave me a vision for the portable showers (to take the service to the people).
My research begins; talking with other people, seeking information how to start a nonprofit organization and how to serve the community with excellence and with integrity. The plans for Mrbubblez Inc. was coming along as planned, when life took a sudden turn which was a big hit to my health the Big C (stage 4 colon cancer) in 2015. With God and my belief in the vision he gave me to see it through, so I had to be healed by God and His love. Here I am, healed and Mrbubblez Inc showers have now blessed over 750 people.

Because our shower units are mobile, we can meet individuals where they are in the community and ensure that they have an opportunity to care for themselves in a way that many people take for granted. Our goal for the years to come, is to expand our area to service more and more people.
Mrbubblez is one of its kind in the Tampa Bay area. Our service delivery model is innovative, as we are the only mobile shower provider in Hillsborough County. Providing mobile showers allows our clients the basic dignity of cleaning themselves, and also gives them the encouragement and care they need to make it one more day. Our volunteers create a safe space where clients can feel refreshed and restored, allowing them to feel loved and valued.
Our motto is “I SEE YOU & I CARE.” We live out this motto by treating each person with respect and honoring their humanity by providing these basic services.
