Aurora provides shower trailer for people experiencing homelessness
(Aurora, Colo.) A shower trailer serving people experiencing homelessness will remain in use in Aurora. The Aurora City Council approved Monday a contract with Clean the World to operate the trailer through Nov. 1, 2023. Aurora is using $238,700 in American Rescue Plan Act money to pay for it.
David HeitzI've been in the news business 35 years, spending much of my career in editing roles at local newspapers in Los Angeles, Detroit, and the Quad-Cities of Illinois and Iowa. Upon moving to Denver in 2018, I began experiencing severe mental illness due to several traumatic experiences. I became homeless on the street for about a year before spending time in the state mental hospital. I am living proof that people can rebound from mental illness with proper treatment, even after experiencing homelessness. I consider myself a lucky guy to live in a great place like Denver. I hope my writing reflects the passion I have for living here.
