Lava Mae is disrupting the way Communities see and serve people moving through homelessness. By shining a light on our shared humanity, driving innovation in programming, and inspiring collaboration, we’re catalyzing change. We do this by bringing critical services -- delivered with an unexpected level of care that we call radical hospitality -- to the street through programs such as our mobile hygiene service and our new Pop-Up Care Villages. Our mission: Taking Radical Hospitality to the Street.
how lava mae was born
It started with one woman, homeless in San Francisco, crying that she would never be clean.
Our founder, Doniece Sandoval heard her cries. Those words, a desire to help those experiencing homelessness, and a crazy obsession with the mobile food truck movement set in motion what eventually became Lava Mae. Started by private citizens who believe that access to showers and toilets shouldn’t be a luxury, Lava Mae seeks to serve those who lack access to what should be basic human rights - showers and sanitation.
