About Us

Founded in 1992, UNITY of Greater New Orleans is a nonprofit organization leading a collaborative of 63 organizations providing housing and services to the homeless. UNITY’s mission is to coordinate community partnerships to prevent, reduce and end homelessness. In addition to raising and distributing funds for the provision of housing and services by the collaborative, UNITY conducts homeless outreach on the streets and in abandoned buildings, develops nonprofit-owned apartment buildings for those who are homeless or low income, helps the public locate affordable housing and advocates for public policy to prevent and reduce homelessness. In recognition of this work, UNITY was selected from 9,000 organizations nationwide to receive the 2010 Nonprofit Achievement Award from the National Alliance to End Homelessness.
