Community

Unity Project for Relief of Homelessness in London’s annual budget is approximately $1.5M. City of London CHPI funding provides for approximately 60% of our budget under contract for shelter services within its Homeless Prevention System. Fundraising through a wide array of appeals and campaigns, major gifts, foundation grants, third party fundraisers and our own special fundraising events provides for the remaining 40% of funds needed. 

Throughout our history so many individuals have made remarkable contributions to our cause. We silently applaud theas we do not publish individual names. We thank you all and publicly recognize foundation donors and major event sponsors here.
