Owned by Family Services of Greater Vancouver, Keeners Car Wash is a social enterprise that hopes to help at-risk and homeless youth by using environmentally friendly and sustainable practices.

Keeners Car Wash employs homeless youth and targets corporate and car share services. Using biodegradable products as well as biodiesel-powered steam cleaning technology, Keeners Car Wash requires less than five litres of water -- the equivalent of 12 cups -- to effectively clean the exterior of one vehicle. While creating jobs for at-risk youth around the city, the social business simultaneously donates its net profits to support Direction Youth Services Center, a similar foundation that provides immediate services and necessities along with long-term support for endangered youth.
