Supporting Unity Project

For Relief of Homelessness in London

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

Our job is to divert people from shelter where opportunity presents, to provide in the moment stability for those in our care, and to empower each in their own process toward housing and stability, while engaging every available community resource.

Unity Project offers a safe, secular and home-like shelter environment for adults and youth of all genders, aged 16 and over. Life skills are embedded in participatory programming. Participants have personal accountability for cooking, cleaning and day to day maintenance – taking care of themselves, each other and community. We shelter 35 – 45 people a night and provide 25-75 episodes of drop-in service supports daily. We provide services and supports to over 1000 individuals annually across all programming.

  • Our goal is to make a stay at our shelter as comfortable, productive and as short as possible.
  • Our purpose is to help end the experience of homeless for each individual in our care.
  • We operate by the values of respect, cooperation, interdependence and compassion.

We thrive on the support you give. Thank you! www.unityproject.ca
