For some people in the St. Cloud area, getting to shower now means more than feeling clean. It's also about respect and a sense of dignity.

"Shower the People" is the latest outreach by a Sauk Rapids couple who have been touring around for the past few weeks with a retrofitted 15-passenger van where homeless men and women can grab a bar of soap and shampoo, and in total privacy wash away the dirt and sweat that comes with living on the street.
