Description

ABOUT LAVA MAE:

Lava Mae is a San Francisco-based nonprofit bringing humanity, innovation, and collaboration to the way services are provided to those experiencing homelessness. Our work is rooted in three beliefs:


1.      Opportunity unfolds when people are treated with dignity.

2.      When it comes to dignity, society has different standards for those with resources vs those who lack them.

3.      Delivering an unexpected level of care to people moving through homelessness restores dignity, rekindles optimism, and fuels a sense of opportunity.


We call this Radical Hospitality and taking it to the streets has become our mission
