The Unity Project provides emergency shelter and transitional housing, and promotes community values in a safe, secular and home-like environment for people aged 18 and over. Out of our two buildings on our Old East Village property, we accommodate between 45-60 people per night, and typically operate at 129% over-capacity. Our shelter is open 24 hours every day offering comfortable dorms, nutritious meals and access to programs and services. Life skills and our values of respect, cooperation, interdependence and compassion are embedded throughout our programming. Upon intake residents choose to cook, clean and perform day to day maintenance based on their interests, abilities and disabilities. This process is integral to creating a sense of personal accountability, through the respectful expectation that we take care of ourselves, each other and our community. We have no janitorial or kitchen staff – residents and frontline staff do it all. We keep the peace and get the dishes done. We run a tight ship with good values – like any good home!
Our Frontline Support Workers manage a caseload of up to 10 residents, providing one-to-one support assisting in the advancement of their personal action plans for stability and independence. Residents may also access resources from the Community Support Worker and Life Skills Coordinator to further advance their goals – whether it is housing, employment or reconnecting with one’s family
