Bruin Shelter

Posted on July 29th, 2016

Duration: Ongoing
First Day : Oct 1, 2016

According to the 2013 FAFSA, 58,000+ college students reported being homeless in the United States. As students, we face a lot in our lives. Classes, extracurriculars, research, jobs, family, etc. give us a lot to worry about. Imagine undertaking those challenges, while also not knowing where you’d sleep that night. 
Bruin Shelter will be the 3rd student-run, student-initiated homeless shelter in the nation, the 1st homeless shelter for homeless college students, and the only youth homeless shelter on the Westside. Using donations, grants, and support from community partners, we provide 8-10 homeless college students with overnight housing and food for 6 months, while helping them transition into permanent housing. During their stay, we strive to create a safe and supportive space for residents, where they take agency in shaping the space to fit their needs and desires. Bruin Shelter provides a family, one that our residents can always rely on whenever they need. 

Join the Bruin Shelter family as a general volunteer, or as a supervisor. Help us provide the support to our peers that need it the most.
