In a city with 3,500 homeless people, a non-profit group called Lava Mae is taking a novel approach to helping the homeless of San Francisco. With a scrapped city bus and a handful of kindhearted volunteers, they drive around the city and provide hundreds of showers a week to those living on the streets. The former public transit bus has been fitted with two fully functioning private bathrooms that offers hot showers, clean toilets, shampoo, soap and towels to those in need.

Inspire others to lend a caring hand to those who need it.
