LAVA MAE POP UP CARE VILLAGE

Lava Mae is a non-profit organization that brings “Radical Hospitality” to those who are moving through homelessness in the San Francisco area by providing an unexpected level of care, promoting dignity, and rekindling hopes and optimism through mobile hygiene service. Lava Mae began with retrofitting decommissioned MUNI buses to offer free mobile showers in 2014 in response to the shortage of public shower facilities available within the City. Inspired by their mission, SITELAB collaborated with Lava Mae to introduce San Francisco’s first “Pop-Up Care Village (PUCV)” (video), an event designed to mobilize and catalyze collective impact of non-profits, social entrepreneurs and city agencies to offer consolidated service and heighten the sense of community and awareness. SITELAB first developed a rendering to help potential partners see the opportunity and then supported Lava Mae with planning, programming, design, and staging strategies throughout PUCV’s pilot program. The PUCV has become a monthly event hosted at Civic Center Plaza fronting San Francisco Main Public Library, and the model has been adopted in San Jose as well as Los Angeles.

In response to Lava Mae’s tremendous local impact and global interest, SITELAB assisted Lava Mae in creating their “DIY Mobile Hygiene Tool Kit”, a road map of best practices andan online platform to connect like-minded service providers, to guide those who are stepping up to help restore much needed mobile hygiene service and dignity in their community.
