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 Whittier Narrows:

Whittier Narrows Recreation Area is one of LA County’s largest parks, and offers a variety of activities such as model airplane fields, field shooting ranges, bicycle paths, and much more.

Under LA County Supervisor Hilda Solis office, Lava Mae was invited participate in a program to service the communities living along the Rio Hondo and San Gabriel Rivers which run through the park, and in the neighboring cities.

The program is a “pop-up” service center that acts as a one-stop-shop for crucial services to uplift and connect our guests to what they need.

We are joined with Operation Healthy Hearts, who provides food and clothing, along with the Department of Social Services, Department of Mental Health, LAHSA, and occasionally haircuts and medical buses.
