About the Event
Lava Mae is about delivering RADICAL HOSPITALITY™ to people moving through homelessness - and our volunteers are at the front lines of our impact.

Join our team of Mobile Service Coordinators at sites across the Bay Area for a unique and memorable day of action on the streets.

About Lake Merritt:

Oakland's new Tuff Shed Project has become a creative way to help address its homelessness issue. Although residents have protective shelter, a cot, and services with paths to permanent housing, there are a number of strict regulations that have some people deterred.

Despite that, the communities have portable bathrooms, and Lava Mae brings showers weekly to each project. Officials hope each resident of the new Tuff Shed community will find a job and permanent housing within six months.

This is an individual volunteer opportunity with a maximum of 2 volunteers per shift. We ask volunteers to stay for a minimum of two hours; our volunteer shifts range from 2.5 hours to 4 hours.
