“College homelessness is an emerging issue that is only recently gaining awareness. The California State University system found that 10{2204c5d06a2333403476cf9e3e7e547d79f3545ee5a4cb715bc6c3341feceb9f} of its students experience homelessness across its 23 campuses.  The LA Community College system, nine campuses across LA, found that 1 in 5 of its students experienced homelessness. These students are caught in the undertow of a perfect storm of two measurable forces, each of them massive in their own right: the lack of affordable education, and the lack of affordable housing.
Students 4 Students
In 2016, two UCLA students founded Students 4 Students (previously Bruin Shelter), a student-founded shelter that serves homeless college students in Los Angeles. Our space is open every day, including weekends, to provide these young people with a home and the basic needs to thrive in school. What makes our shelter special is that we are a shelter run for students, by students. Because we are students ourselves, we understand first-hand the thousands of opportunities in a lifetime that are at stake between gaining a diploma or falling just short.”
