About the Event
Join Lava Mae in taking RADICAL HOSPITALITY™ to the streets, as we deliver mobile showers to help our unhoused neighbors rekindle dignity, restore hope and unlock the opportunity that comes with being clean.

When you volunteer with our mobile hygiene service, you’ll play a vital role in helping our shower guests feel welcome, seen and valued. Working alongside our team, you’ll greet guests, chat with them while they await their shower appointment, provide fresh towels, clean socks and personal hygiene items, and clean shower stalls after each use.

We look forward to welcoming you!

What to Expect: This is an individual volunteer opportunity with a maximum of 2 volunteers per shift. We ask volunteers to please stay for a minimum of two hours. When you arrive, Lava Mae’s Mobile Service Coordinators will provide a short orientation. Volunteering at our mobile hygiene service is a unique opportunity to get to know our grateful guests. We encourage you to be curious, ask questions, and treat every guest with an unexpected level of care we call RADICAL HOSPITALITY™.

About St. Francis Center:

St. Francis Center is located in Service Planning Area (SPA) 4, which has the highest concentration of homeless individuals in the county. Furthermore, there is a lack of homeless services providers in this area and limited shower facilities available for the homeless.

The center provides a variety of crucial services for the community such as health, hygiene, food, and senior and youth programs.

They has been experiencing an increased demand for their shower program, as access to free, safe showers in the community is very limited. In fact, St. Francis Center is the only facility where homeless guests can take a shower south of Freeway 10 in Los Angeles down to Huntington Park.

St. Francis Center provides shower service four days a week; Lava Mae provides mobile shower service once a week.
