Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Uniting with Showering Love

Not only do they work hard and do amazing things for the children at the hospital, but have also partnered with us at Showering Love! It has been the most amazing gift to us. We are so lucky to have an incredible group of ladies, that are nurses and medical professionals, uniting with Showering Love and making so many spectacular contributions! Additionally, we would like to acknowledge Lisa Harper for her help and efforts in getting this partnership off the ground!! Thank you, Lisa!!

We are “SEW” Grateful to the Heroes at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital

This fantastic group of ladies makes the most beautiful blankets for our guests!! Even though we are in Florida and surrounded by beaches and palm trees, it gets cold some nights. The blankets they make are so cozy and crafted with so much love! They even have a sewing room in the hospital! WOW! Our guests are so happy to receive them and so appreciative, that they were made by hand and especially for them.

Healthcare for the Homeless

It gets even better… wait for it… We are also very excited to announce that they are now coming out with us, monthly, to help get those that are unsheltered enrolled and signed up for healthcare!!! This is truly amazing and will help so many people that are in desperate need of medical care.Showering Love is so excited about this partnership, with this fabulous group from Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. We feel truly blessed that this special group of ladies will be joining our efforts to help those that are struggling. We are ‘over the moon’ that our guests will start receiving much-needed healthcare, as one of our priorities at Showering Love is promoting hygiene, health, and wellness!!! This vulnerable population is in such dire need of medical care and evaluation, both physical and emotional, it will bring them the promise of a new day.

Homelessness Contributes to Poor Health

As most of us know, those that are unhoused are at a much greater risk of suffering from illnesses, both physically and emotionally. They are exposed to countless unhealthy elements and are rarely seen by doctors or medical professionals. The most common ailments facing our homeless population are as follows:

  • HIV/AIDS
  • Lung Diseases [bronchitis, tuberculosis, and pneumonia] Malnutrition
  • Mental Health Problem
  • Malnutrition
  • Wounds and Skin Infections
  • Cancer
  • Heart Disease & Hypertension
  • Oral Diseases

Below is a graphic chart comparing the health conditions of our unhoused population vs. housed population. It may not come as much of a surprise,  but those experiencing homelessness are significantly suffering from disease and illness at much higher rates. The daily struggles facing them are extremely overwhelming. . Showering Love is 100% committed to working tirelessly and being part of the solution for each of their challenges. It is only with the kindness and generosity of people like you, and this remarkable group, that we are able to do what we do. Most importantly, thanks to all of you, we are able to help many people and families in great need. Please continue to support this great cause with us and be part of the difference.
