OUR STORY

Our co-founders, Sam Greenberg and Sarah Rosenkrantz, opened Y2Y Harvard Square in December 2015, because we believe that all young people should have a safe place to sleep and the resources they need to succeed. Our founding team met while volunteering at Phillip Brooks House Association’s Harvard Square Homeless Shelter (HSHS), where during their service, they saw more and more young people come through their doors. Over the course of several years, we learned that young adults needed a youth-driven space because they didn’t feel safe staying in adult shelters. However, the youth-run HSHS was consistently regarded as a safe space for young people. Given that there were only 12 beds specifically for young adults in Greater Boston, it was critical to work to meet this need. In deep partnership with PBHA, we convened a broad, diverse group of stakeholders and worked together to open student-run Y2Y Harvard Square.
