    Project Ropa Mobile Hygiene and Social Enterprise

    Project Ropa recycles more than 35,000 pounds of clothing, shoes and textiles every year and distributes them locally to more than 14,000 unhoused and low-income individuals and families through our Mobile Hygiene Services and Community Partnerships. To further our mission and help break the cycle of homelessness, we have created a social enterprise that provides job opportunities for formerly homeless and incarcerated individuals, which also empowers lives and protects the environment by reducing the textile waste that is going into landfills.
