About Unity Project

Unity Project for Relief of Homelessness provides emergency shelter, supportive housing and related services to assist adults and youth of all genders to escape and avoid homelessness. Life skills are embedded in a home-like environment where participatory programming involves participants in personal accountability for cooking, cleaning and day to day maintenance – taking care of themselves, each other and community. Unity Project provides services and supports to over 1000 individuals annually across all programming. 

We operate everyday by the values of respect, cooperation, interdependence and compassion. We thrive on the support you give!

About Museum London

Museum London provides for the collection and presentation of visual art and material culture through public and educational programming, special events and exhibitions and strives to promote the knowledge and enjoyment of regional art, culture and history. 

The Museum is more than art on walls and artifacts in cases. It’s a conversation starter. A cultural hub. A place where our stories are shared. Museum London is where our community discovers exceptional art, rich history and new possibilities. Your support ensures we can provide a wide variety of free public programming and cultural experiences geared to all ages.

Collaboration & Partnership

Unity Project for Relief of Homelessness and Museum London are pleased to announce the continuation of our partnership for the 10th Annual UPwithART 2020.

This important partnership represents true collaboration between sectors which have often been divided in the competition for scarce resources. Together, we not only fuel our respective missions, but further strengthen the intersection of arts, culture, and social justice and the role they play in making London a more vibrant city.

Museum London’s share of proceeds will support its children’s and Indigenous programming including camps, classes, and workshops. Museum London seeks to deepen the visitor experience and advance a lively, creative cultural centre that inspires, encourages, and engages the community.

Unity Project’s share of proceeds support its three-year project to adapt Housing First to the emergency shelter context. We aim to transform emergency shelter to go beyond merely meeting basic needs – we will help vulnerable people to end or avoid their experience of homelessness, through shelter diversion, and helping to obtain housing and maintain stability in community.
