When SHARE was discussing issues at People’s Park, a common complaint that our clients were bringing up again and again about was the lack of soap dispensers in bathrooms at the park. Every time soap dispensers were put in place, they would get vandalized so the people in charge of the park had just given up on replacing them.
The clients in SHARE discussed possible solutions and designs that would allow for new dispensers to be put up. Then a SHARE coord, Lexi, went to a People’s Park Advisory Board meeting and brought up the solutions that our clients in SHARE had decided were the best. Within a few weeks, Devon, the administrator in charge of the park emailed Lexi a picture of the new soap dispensers.
The design was one that had been discussed as solution in SHARE. SHARE cannot take full credit for this project since the meeting’s minutes had already included the soap dispensers as an item, but it does seem that they listened to our suggestions at the very least.
