Y2Y Harvard Square will open for the season on October 15. Enter the lottery beginning on October 8 at 8:00am to be considered for the first lottery, which will take place at 8:00am on October 15.
Note that we stagger stays for guests who receive a bed on the first night of operations anywhere from 9 to 30 days. Please contact Y2Y for information on the length of your stay.
Long-term beds are given away each morning starting on October 15. Please use this form to enter the lottery for yourself (if you are a young adult between the ages of 18-24) or on behalf of a young adult who needs a bed. Lottery entries can be submitted until 7:59am to be considered for that morning's lottery. This means if you submit this form at 8:05am, you will be entered into the lottery the following day. If you win the lottery, you will be notified by 9:15am that morning, and may begin staying at Y2Y that night.
If you do not want to enter the lottery online, you may call the shelter at 617-864-0795 between 8-8:30am each morning. The lottery is completely random and we will email results to the email you provide on this form. You may also call us for results between 8:50-9:15am or after 7:00pm that night.
