Project for the Homeless

Project for the Homeless (PFH) is a student organization that staffs two small homeless shelters in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, the men's shelter at Stephen Wise Free Synagogue and the women's shelter at the New York Society for Ethical Culture. By having Columbia and Barnard students as nightly supervisors, PFH ensures that the two shelters remain open for 120 nights for the men and women who are in need of a place to stay in the City of New York.
