Harvard Students Provide Homeless Shelter for Community

Prestigious Harvard University not only boasts some of the U.S.’s most elite lawyers, doctors and business people, but Harvard students who want to serve their community can also be added to the list.

The prestigious school provides the only student-ran homeless shelter in the country.

“When I got on campus, I saw a really strong juxtaposition between the wealth, prestige and power of the university compared with the plight of so many people in the square,” said Jonathan Warsh, a senior from Bloomfield Hills, Mich., and co-administrative director for the shelter. “It’s too easy to get trapped in the ivory tower.”

The shelter, which opened its doors to the homeless in 1983, serves the community every night from Nov. 15 to April 15. The shelter is located at University Lutheran Church. The church is not affiliated with Harvard, and it rents out the space to the university for a small fee.
