A Mural That Feels Like Home

Mural for New Homeless Shelter Comes to Life at Maud Morgan Arts

“I see the city line every day. When I go to the shelter, that’s not what I want to see.” So said one of the homeless youth at a design meeting for a mural recently completed by volunteer artists at Maud Morgan Arts. The mural will hang in Y2Y, a new shelter in Harvard Square for homeless 18-24 year-olds that opened in December. During the day, the shelter provides space for Youth on Fire, a drop-in program for homeless and street-involved youth.
