Love, Dignity and Detergent

Laundry Love consists of regular opportunities to come alongside people who are struggling financially by assisting them with their laundry. Laundry Love partners with agencies and local laundromats in cleaning clothes and linens of low-income or no-income families and individuals. We see the laundromat as a place where strangers become friends, people are known by name, hope is hustled, and the worth of every human being is acknowledged and celebrated.

When is Laundry Love?

Open Laundry Night happens on the 3rd Wednesday of every month. We gather and begin registering clients at 5:30pm

There is NO pre-registration. We provide services on a first-come-first-served basis and assist clients in the order they register. You will need to bring a photo ID and either a LINK card or your Medicaid eligibility information.

How much laundry can I do?

We typically wash up to 3 loads for an individual or 5 loads for a family. Helpful hint: a large, full laundry basket usually represents 2 loads.

Does Laundry Love have services at other times?

Yes. We have programs that serve clients of Rosecrance and newly settled refugees through Catholic Charities. Those clients book a time with Laundry Love through their caseworkers.

Can you do laundry in emergencies or when there is great need?

Emergency requests can usually be accommodated. Please contact one of the program coordinators. Requests for emergency or unscheduled services can be made by a caseworker from a local agency or your pastor. Contact information is on the About Us page.
