Showers for the Homeless MKE

Hupy and Abraham president Attorney Michael Hupy has been inspired by two Milwaukee men and their vision for the area’s homeless population. The men, Nurse (Muhammad) Mahdi and Ronnie Lockett, have begun the “Community Resource Hygiene Clinics” project, which will provide portable showers for the homeless to use. Nurse Mahdi set out to “pay it forward” after receiving a stranger’s support when he was homeless.

The shower project entails more than a stall. Each unit comes with a sitting area and place to hang clothes. The overall program vision includes free food, free hygiene products, resource information for the city and free medical services. Lockett and Nurse Mahdi currently build every shower by hand. As veterans, both Lockett and Mahdi strive to assist those that have served and fallen on hard times. Their goal is to complete 10 operable showers by the end of summer 2019 and 35-40 units with support by local officials at 2020 summer’s end.

Attorney Michael Hupy has given a $1,000 donation after being moved by their story and its goals. This is not the first time Attorney Michael Hupy has committed monetary donations to assist local citizens in need. He recently covered a Milwaukee woman’s rent after a fake landlord scam and paid full funeral/burial costs for a gun violence victim’s death. Hupy and Abraham’s mission is “doing well by doing good” and has given over a million dollars to worthwhile organizations.

If you would like to help Nurse Mahdi and Mr. Lockett’s project, more information can be found on their GoFundMe site.
