Mobile showers come to Berkeley, providing the homeless with a new place to get clean

In Berkeley, where shelter for those experiencing homelessness is extremely difficult to come by, the nonprofit and advocacy group Lava Mae is partnering with the city to provide a dedicated space for personal hygiene and showers across the city. While the service has been slow to catch on, efforts to share information about the service through word of mouth are catching on and the service has expanded throughout the state. While it's not a solution for the growing homelessness crisis, it's just one step being taken to treat those experiencing homelessness with dignity and respect.
