Kaiser Convention Center, 10th Street at Peralta Park

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.

Shift Details
Landmarks: The Tuff Sheds
Date: Weekly on Fridays
Time: 9:00am - 2:30pm
Parking: Street and metered parking in the surrounding area.

Join us in raising the bar and providing care and dignity to people moving through homelessness in Oakland.

What to Expect: This is an individual volunteer opportunity with a maximum of 2 volunteers per volunteer shift. Lava Mae’s Mobile Service Coordinators will provide a quick orientation at the beginning of your shift. You will be assisting with welcoming our guests and cleaning the showers (optional). This is a perfect opportunity to get to know our guests while they’re waiting to access our mobile hygiene service. We encourage you to be curious, ask questions, and understand the heart of our work.
