Unity Project offers a home-like shelter environment for adults and youth of all genders, aged 16 and over. Life skills are embedded in participatory programming, where participants have personal accountability for cooking, cleaning and day-to-day maintenance – taking care of themselves, each other and community. We provide services and supports to over 1000 individuals annually across all programming.
Unity Project works to make a stay at our shelter as comfortable, productive and as short as possible. We aim to use the lightest touch necessary to end the experience of homelessness for each and every individual in our care.
Sometimes it takes just a little support. Sometimes it takes extended support over time and beyond our shelter walls. It always takes community and compassion.
Our job is to divert people from shelter wherever there is opportunity, to provide in-the-moment stability for those in crisis, and to empower each participant in their own process toward housing, while engaging every available community resource.
