Lava Mae brings critical services to the streets – delivered with an unexpected level of care we call Radical Hospitality – to rekindle dignity and hope for people experiencing homelessness through our Mobile Hygiene Service, Pop-Up Care Villages and buildIt toolkit.
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 forge creative partnerships across sectors to radically increase access to services and better meet ours guests’ needs.
