Silent Auction fundraiser for Unity Project

Nowhere to go… but then there’s UP. Unity Project provides emergency shelter and transitional housing, and supports self-help where people are struggling to escape and avoid homelessness. A homelike shelter environment involves residents in cooking, cleaning and daily maintenance as part of a participatory program. Together we take care of ourselves,  each other and our community.  Over 650 individuals are sheltered annually and hundreds more supported through drop-in, housing and life skills programming.

London’s best arty-party for relief of homelessness

A multisensory experience reaches every corner inside the art-deco doors of The Palace Theatre. Unity Project’s signature fundraising event  aims to raise $75,000 to support its Life Skills Program, helping vulnerable Londoners with Health and Wellness, House and Home, System Navigation and Employment Skills.
