Heart and Home Collaborative, a nonprofit organization established by Stanford students, opened its first women’s shelter Sunday night. Currently hosted at Peninsula Bible Church and University Lutheran Church, the shelter will be hosting up to 15 homeless women in Palo Alto.

The women’s shelter program is an expansion of Night Outreach’s efforts to interact with the local homeless community. For the past ten years, members and any other Stanford affiliates have participated in weekly Night Outreach walks. The group goes to downtown Palo Alto to engage with the homeless community, “with the belief that compassion and conversation are just as important as food and shelter,” according to the Night Outreach mission.
