Lava Mae brings critical services to the streets – delivered with an unexpected level of care we call Radical Hospitality™ – where people experiencing homelessness need them most.

Our work is rooted in three core principles:


Opportunity unfolds when people are treated with dignity, and everyone rises to the level of care they’re provided.


We pilot, test, and refine new programs, and share what we’ve learned with the world.


We forge creative partnerships across sectors to radically increase access to services and better meet ours guests’ needs.
