Make a Home!!

Help UNITY and our partners to house all of the hundreds of disabled, chronically homeless people who live on our community's streets and shelters. Many homeless people are extremely ill and at risk of death if not housed. For instance, UNITY's outreach team found Johnnie Suer (above) living in a van while he went through treatment for a brain tumor.

Your tax-deductible gift to our Make a Home Fund helps to purchase mattresses and household items or other items essential to housing a veteran or a disabled homeless person.

Simply click the link below and designate "Make a Home" for your donation. Or, donate new and gently used household goods to our warehouse by calling (504) 483-9300 or emailing here.

National Recognition

After Hurricane Katrina, UNITY and its 60 member agencies were "a clarion voice for justice," says former Sen. Mary Landrieu in this video, made by the National Alliance to End Homelessness. In 2010, NAEH named UNITY its outstanding nonprofit in homelessness from a field of 9,000 such organizations nationwide.
