I'm a member of the Advisory Board for Y2Y Harvard Square, and I have been just blown away by the passion, commitment and resourcefulness of the young adults who have ushered this project into existence.  The non-profit is called ‘Y2Y Harvard Square” and it operates on a unique peer-to-peer model – basically young adults helping other young adults find a sustainable way out of homelessness and onto a stable and enriching path in life. In the year that I've had the pleasure of serving as mentor to the leadership team and a board member of the organization, my eyes have been opened to the depth of the homelessness problem in the country and its especially painful impact on the young and most vulnerable among us.  The shelter is scheduled to officially open by the end of this year and is in the "last mile" of fund raising to help equip and outfit the facility. We've started an Indiegogo campaign seeking small, individual contributions to raise the last $50,000 we need. I would be eternally grateful if you took a look at the link below and at the organization's Web site and contributed some small amount to help close this final gap and aid the young homeless of our region.

Many thanks,
