AT LEAST 150 Young Adults in Greater Boston Don't Know Where They Are Going to Sleep Tonight
Y2Y began as a project of student volunteers from the student-run Harvard Square Homeless Shelter (HSHS). For over 30 years, HSHS built a reputation as one of the safest and most welcoming shelters in the Boston area at very low cost. Y2Y and HSHS are both programs of the Phillips Brooks House Association, a Harvard College-affiliated 501(c)3 that has served the Cambridge and Boston communities for over 100 years.
Y2Y Harvard Square operates out of the First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church in Cambridge. We are proud to partner with the First Parish community, who have warmly welcomed Y2Y into their space and volunteered many hours at the overnight program.
