__________________ About Us __________________

Lava Mae delivers dignity and creates opportunity – one mobile shower at a time.

We’re driven by three beliefs:

  1. Everyone has a right to be clean.
  2. Access to water and sanitation is a basic human right.
  3. With hygiene comes dignity and with dignity, opportunity.

That’s why we’ve converted retired MUNI buses into bathrooms on wheels for the homeless. But the true value of our service lies in its power to break the cycle of dehumanization and seed hope.

San Francisco – like so many cities across this country – has a massive shortage of showers and toilets available to the men, women and children who live on our city’s streets. Before Lava Mae, there were only 16 showers stalls for over 3,500 homeless San Franciscans.

Since our pilot launched last June, we’ve provided over 1,500 showers. This year, we’re working to raise that number to 50,000.

One of the coolest pieces of urban design and thinking that I have seen.

My God, go three days without a shower. Just three days. Pretty soon, you just feel like a worm, a social worm.

I've been trying to take a shower for two weeks, and I finally got in here today. To be able to take a shower at least once or twice a week is probably the best thing ever.

Giving homeless individuals access to showers and personal care is vital. You can imagine that many might take their first step out of homelessness by stepping into a Lava Mae shower.
