Looking for a spot to Shower?
CHECK OUT LAVA MAE Shower in a converted retired MUNI bus.
http://www.lavamae.org/ About Lava Mae’s Founder Doniece Sandoval: Driven by a fierce belief that everyone has a right to
dignity and the knowledge that access to showers and sanitation are in serious short supply for the homeless, Doniece was
compelled to start Lava Mae. Mission: To deliver dignity and unlock opportunity for those experiencing homelessness — one
mobile shower at a time. Fundamental to this mission are three beliefs:
1. Everyone has the right to be clean.
2. Those experiencing homelessness can’t access jobs and housing or maintain health and wellbeing if they can’t get clean.
3. With hygiene comes dignity; with dignity, opportunity.

NEW CALIFORNIA SYRINGE LAWS!!!
As of January 1, 2015, licensed pharmacists have the discretion to sell hypodermic needles and syringes to
adults age 18 and older without a prescription to reduce the spread of HIV, hepatitis C and other blood-borne

*Adults age 18 and older may possess needles and syringes for personal use if acquired from a pharmacy,
physician or authorized syringe exchange program.
*There is no longer any limit on the number of needles and syringes that an adult may purchase and possess.
*These changes to California law were made by Assembly Bill 1743 (Ting, Chapter 331, Statutes of 2014). The
relevant sections of California Business and Professions Code and Health and Safety Code now read:
California Business and Professions Code Section 4145.5(b) /California Health and Safety Code Section 11364
•
