Working at Unity Project is a fulfilling experience full of challenges and rewards.

We only accept applications for Relief Staff on an ongoing basis. Please apply if interested. Full-time position openings are posted as arising. We do not keep resumes on file.


You can help!

Let’s stop throwing up our hands… let’s pound our fists and make demands of all of our elected officials… to raise the rates and invest in genuinely affordable housing.

Poverty is the leading cause of homelessness and income the solution to poverty.

Paying your employees a living wage contributes to a healthy and vibrant community, sets a positive example and influences others to do the same.


Your voice is a valuable tool.

Share your advocacy on social media, post articles, attend events, workshops and rallies, and challenge stigma to make the fight to end homelessness visible. Raising your voice raises awareness and mobilizes action.

Homelessness is a crisis a person experiences; it does not define the person.

The language you use is important in conveying compassion and respect.


Your gifts help end the experience of homelessness for individuals in our care.

You can make a one-time donation online, by cheque or securities, set up monthly giving or host an event. There are many ways to give.
