Kaylah and Sean are at our mobile shower service in Oakland maximizing the fun and joy of our work. Showers are a basic need for dignity but dancing and smiling bring joy to life. #radicalhospitality#lavamae
We're so excited to see our partnership with @UnileverUSA come to life! 💚💙💜❤️ Together, we hope to increase access to showers and other hygiene needs for those experiencing homelessness.

Our mobile service coordinator (MSC), Will was shower challenged! 🚿He got into the shower stall in our mobile hygiene trailer and got nice and relaxing shower. MSC Torin is up next. We'll share results next week. #LavaMae
