The Laundry Truck LA

Our non-profit, The Laundry Truck LA (TLTLA), is at the heart of our local social mission. With the LA Fashion District situated alongside the community of Skid Row, our mission to serve those experiencing homelessness became clear: we make clothes – let’s wash and clean some clothes! In October 2017, we founded The Laundry Truck LA (TLTLA), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity, which funds a free mobile laundry service for our unhoused neighbors and those in need in Los Angeles. We became one of the first mobile laundry services in the country to serve the homeless community, and one of a handful that we know of in the world.

      OUR STORY

      In 2018, we set out to build the truck through private donations and received support from many. TLTLA began serving the community in January 2019 with 5 sets of washers & dryers, a folding station, a water heater, and propane tanks on a 16' trailer. Being an early innovator in this space has been exciting but certainly not without its challenges – hoses and water pressure, generators and electrical outlets, as well as manufacturer warranties that do not apply when units are put into a mobile unit (who knew?) have all been part of the experience.

      Despite the challenges, TLTLA is growing through local city, county and community support! Initially operating 2x per week providing free services for anyone in need, it is estimated that TLTLA did approximately 3,000-4,000 loads of laundry in 2019. As of January 2020, we are providing laundry service 7 days a week and have the potential to complete 15,000+ loads of laundry this year with the addition of a second truck in July 2020.

      Accessible personal care services, like clean laundry, truly impact lives, and can make the difference in securing employment or housing, or for kids, the difference in having a positive school experience. Our goal is to build awareness for this cause and come together to continue bringing this much needed service to our neighboring communities. Our proceeds, your donations and the City of Los Angeles keep The Laundry Truck LA moving and making an impact!  

      Together, we've met our goal to bring this service to life but still need just over $4k per month at each location to continue reaching those in need. Your donations, voice and role in this journey are so appreciated.
