Y2Y Harvard Square


Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA






At Y2Y Harvard Square, the nation’s first youth-led shelter for unhoused youth, guests collaborate with service providers, other youth experiencing homelessness, and student volunteers to create sustainable pathways out of homelessness and develop skills for long-term success.

The Y2Y shelter has 27 beds, which make up over 2/3 of the youth-specific shelter beds in the Greater Boston Area. Y2Y Harvard Square provides opportunities for both guests and student volunteers to become the next generation’s leading advocates for youth-driven solutions to homelessness.  The shelter provides access to basic resources and services ranging from case management to linkages with legal, medical, and mental health providers.
