Lava Mae: Taking Radical Hospitality to the street
Founded by Doniece Sandoval in 2013, Lava Mae began by converting public transportation buses into showers and toilets on wheels to deliver hygiene and rekindle dignity for our homeless guests in San Francisco. To-date, Lava Mae has served more than 4,000 individuals who have taken 20,000+ showers on our mobile units, dramatically raised awareness about the lack of access to showers and basic hygiene for our homeless neighbors, and inspired new mobile hygiene programs across the U.S. and abroad.
