Unity House Year End Appeal

Consider a Year End Gift to Unity House

Your support will help people in our community who are struggling and hurting.

  • Our Community Resources Program helps thousands through access to our food pantry, dining room meals, employment coaching, clothing, and mental health services as well as referrals to services such as home heating help and SNAP benefits, commonly known as food stamps.
  • A Child’s Place at Unity House serves countless families in Albany and Troy by providing access to affordable childcare, special education, and early intervention services for children with developmental delays.
  • Unity House’s Housing Support Services Program actively prevents homelessness by housing and helping some of our most vulnerable neighbors: those living with chronic, serious disease such as mental illness or HIV/AIDS. Northeast Career Planning Services at Unity House helps people overcome barriers to employment and is home to our Pros on Broadway, located in Menands, helping adults with a mental health diagnosis get on the path to independence and wellness through Personalized Recovery Oriented Services.
  • The Unity House Domestic Violence Services Program offers safe space to all victims of domestic and dating abuse. Their many services – from housing to legal services and support groups – lead to changed lives.
  • The Unity House Law Project helps countless individuals and families with civil legal matters.

As 2016 turns to 2017, our clients face yet another year of economic hardship. Imagine getting an eviction notice or utility shutoff warning in February; or finding it necessary to stuff your children’s belongings into a bag and flee to a shelter to protect them from violence on a rainy night in March. Imagine being hungry all week and knowing your only meals will come from the Unity House dining room. Unity House services are available to combat the many ways poverty, disability and violence makes life difficult for people.

If you share our core belief that all people are to be treated with respect and compassion so they may have dignity and hope for changed lives, please join us in helping people in need. You can make a gift to Unity House via our secure portal, or mail your check to:
