The goal of Bruin Shelter's nonprofit organization is to share our open-source model of a student-run shelter with any college student organizations who want to create a safe, supportive space for people who need it in our communities. We provide direct support to student-run shelters by working with foundations, local government officials, and community-based organizations to make sure the lights stay on and the students running the shelter can continue to provide a safe, supportive space for people who need it.
The organization is 100% volunteer-based with no personnel overhead costs, meaning that approximately 90% of our dollars goes directly to operating the shelter for young people who need it. Bruin Shelter is a project under Community Partners, a 501c3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible. Thank you for being a part of this remarkable journey!
