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 programs:

Mobile Hygiene

We bring showers and toilets on wheels to our unhoused neighbors in San Francisco, Oakland and Los Angeles.

Pop-Up Care Villages

We host one-stop events offering showers, haircuts, food, clothing, medical care, employment services and much more.


We recruit, train and support people everywhere to launch new mobile hygiene programs modeled after ours.
