Oakland Pop-Up Village Will Offer Services for Unsheltered People

The city of Oakland's Human Services Department will partner with Lava Mae next Wednesday to offer a pop-up care village in which dozens of volunteers will offer services to unsheltered people in need.

Among the services that will be provided in Frank Ogawa Plaza in front of Oakland City Hall from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Dec. 4 are food, clothing, showers, haircuts, acupuncture, art and music, animal care, veterinary services, mental health, social, and medical services, legal aid and harm reduction.

Lava Mae works throughout the Bay Area offering critical hygiene services to the most vulnerable residents by coming directly into the community.

People who want more information about the event may call Katie Switek at (415) 660-7420.
