Shower Services

Access to hygiene services, including handwashing, bathrooms, and showers is critical for us all.  Rose Haven offers two private bathrooms and one private shower room that are available to Rose Haven guests during our morning service hours, Monday-Friday, 9am-12pm.   Each room is fully sanitized after each use for the health and safety of our guests.  Each day, five shower appointments are available, with a timeframe of 20-minute appointments.

Guests are provided with freshly cleaned towels, washcloth and bathmat, as well as shampoo, conditioner and other shower supplies upon request.

Under COVID-19, we are not able to offer the Vanity Set-up for hair and make-up until further notice.  Showers and bathrooms are located onsite in the Fellowship Hall of First Immanuel Lutheran Church located at 1820 NW Irving St. Look for the blue awning close to 19th on the south side of Irving, and knock on the door.

Rose Haven also works with community partners to connect guests with additional health and wellness resources. This includes access to onsite services through student Nurse visits, as well as mobile behavioral health and recovery support through Bridges to Change.  Additionally, Rose Haven also works with the National University of Naturopathic Medicine (NUNM) to connect guests with holistic and natural alternatives to healthcare.

How do I access showers?

Shower sign-ups start each day, Monday-Friday, at 9am at the Fellowship Hall door. Shower sign-ups are first come, first serve and will be taken in the order that people arrive until the list is full. Guests seeking showers are encouraged to come no later 9am, as the daily list fills up very quickly.  Bathroom access is available during morning services, as people request. Please note that we have two bathrooms. To ensure time to sanitize between each use, there may be a short wait time.

After signing up for a shower, the guest must arrive on time at the Fellowship Hall.  For example, if you sign up for the 9:40 AM time, you must be at the Fellowship Hall at this time, preferably a few minutes before.  Knock on the door and a staff member will bring you to the shower room. The 20 minutes begins at the start of your appointment, and more time cannot be given if you are late.
