San Francisco Buses Have Been Turned Into A Showering Units For The Homeless People

Showering is a simple thing. But it is valuable. It not only helps with everyday hygiene and health, but also provides the homeless population with a sense of dignity and self-worth.


There are over 3,500 people living in the San Francisco’s streets. They aren’t able to shower every day. But all of that is about to change thanks to Lava Mae, non-profit organization created by Doniece Sandoval. Thanks to them hundreds of homeless people can have access to a hot shower every single day.

They are providing showers to the homeless, all onboard retrofitted city buses. Each bus was converted into a mobile showering space with three showers, a private area for changing, and toilets. Each one costs around $75,000 to redesign.

It is great idea that makes me believe in other people.
