The Street Boutique, part of Think Dignity’s MOD (Mobile Operations of Dignity) Squad, is aimed at providing homeless folks with access to menstrual and incontinence products, as well as new undergarments such as bras and underwear.
All products available at the Street Boutique will be available for “purchase” using a free token system, so the folks we serve have the opportunity to “shop” and choose a limited number of items to “purchase” from the boutique – whether it be a month’s worth of menstrual or incontinence products, several pairs of new underwear, a fancy bra, or any combination of products. Providing access to menstrual products, incontinence products, new bras and underwear will not only help restore basic dignity to homeless folks, but is also aimed at preventing unwanted physical health outcomes from lack of access to hygienic garments and products.
Additionally, access to these items will allow folks to stay cleaner and healthier, may increase levels of self-esteem, and has the potential to increase the likelihood for someone to obtain a job or get off the streets.
