Clarisa Merkatz

Massachusetts, USA
SDSE 2017

Clarisa currently works on an initiative with fellow alumna Jennifer Lu (SDSE 2017) that provides items to homeless shelters in the Boston area. Created Just Like Home helps facilitate the transition of people from shelters into their own homes. Clarisa and Jennifer communicate with local shelters to determine what items are in demand, and they organize fundraisers to raise money and purchase high-demand items for donation.
