"[Toilet Equity toilets] are a sustainable answer to a perpetual issue. We hope that some of our long term interventions will diminish the challenges of housing for some of our neighbors but there will probably always be a houseless population.... Having a long term sanitation solution is a wise investment." 

Unitarian Universalist Church,
Grand Junction, CO

"The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Grand Valley is honored to be one of the first locations supporting the Toilet Equity program and hosting one of their first toilets. We fully support the program, and its mission and commitment, to supporting the inherent worth and dignity of every person, and providing a green solution for the environment."

-Rev. Wendy Jones,
Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Grand Valley

Thank you to all of our volunteers, donors, and supporters
who made our success this year possible. 

We are very excited to continue working with you in 2024
to continue providing equitable toilet access for those without,
in service of community and environmental health.
