Showering on the go: San Francisco nonprofit rolls out Lava Mae, a bus with toilets and showers, where the homeless can go to clean up.
"A nonprofit group is taking a novel approach to helping the homeless in San Francisco with a new bus that allows them to take a shower. The former public transit bus has been outfitted with two full private bathrooms and offers hot showers, clean toilets, shampoo, soap and towels free of charge. The founder of the nonprofit Lava Mae mobile shower bus said she wanted to return a sense of dignity to those living on the streets." -- Haven Dailey, Associated Press via the San Antonio Express-News
