Permanent Housing

Unity consists of six houses around the city, totalling 25 rooms. It’s a unique project where people who have faced challenges obtaining stable housing, live and work together communally.

It constitutes a supportive self-directed community for individuals with mental health diagnoses aiming to further develop their social and life skills. The rehabilitative model at Unity focuses on “wellness through social interaction” and, by way of monthly housing meetings and quarterly tenants’ meetings, evokes the principles of participatory democracy in decision-making.
