What does "it" substitute? This was from the next sentence: "Roberts needed someone to push his wheelchair. Sometimes a friend helped willingly. But for the most part, it hired attendants."

We need the full sentence: "At Berkeley, Roberts needed someone to push his wheelchair and help him get dressed and eat. Sometimes a friend helped willingly. But for the most part, it hired attendants, including sometimes his brother Ron, also a student at Berkeley." "It" = Berkeley.

You have taken the "it" and isolated it from context, so of course it's not easy to understand what "it" is referring to. Filling in the blanks, "it" probably refers to some hospital or care center for the disabled or elderly. My guess is that "it" is actually a nursing home. As I said, though, with the context (previous sentences before the one you've given) missing, it's very difficult to figure out what "it" refers to.
