Housing with supports is the solution to homelessness.

Emergency Shelter

Our housing-outcome focused shelter program accommodates 35 – 40 adults and youth of all genders, prioritizing those with complex housing requirements including medical conditions, couples and people with pets. Participants’ basic needs are met daily while engaging in a personal action plan toward housing and stability in community.

Unity House, Unity Project’s supportive housing unit, provides private, rent-geared-to-income accomodations with shared amenities and housing stability supports for 6 – 8 individuals to develop greater independence and a tenancy track record while working on transitioning to housing in the community.

Housing Stability Program

Moderate to intensive case management to help those with a history of homelessness to obtain housing, and with in-home supports to connect individuals to appropriate medical, mental health, age, race, and gender wrap-around supports – whatever it takes – to maintain stability, wellness and belonging in community.

An assessment process is used to prioritize and provide appropriate levels of internal shared case management support that is externally integrated with a spectrum of interventions in the housing stability system. Frontline Support Workers each manage a caseload of 8-12 residents. We use harm reduction and trauma-informed practices, promote choice and self-determination for residents, utilize motivational interviewing and assertive engagement techniques to complete a housing and support assessment, prepare a housing and support plan, become paper ready (i.e. ensure a current assessment, income verification, and identification are secured), find suitable housing and navigate the system to secure housing, and connect to appropriate community services and resources.

Whatever-it-takes supports include medical, legal, income, landlord/tenant, family/CAS, mental health, addictions, life skills and connecting individuals to appropriate medical, mental health, age, race, and gender wrap-around supports in community. It means using every available community resource. It means working from a harm reduction and low-barrier perspective to meet people where they are at and work with them from a place of respect to meet their needs.
