Davie, who prefers to be only referred to by his last name, is one of many homeless people in Harvard Square that remain outdoors during the recent cold weather and snowstorms. While he occasionally sleeps at the Harvard Square Homeless Shelter, a spot is not always guaranteed due to a large demand.
