Who We Are...

Unity House provides services for adults who are in need of assistance with psychosocial and vocational development . 

             

              Unity House is a kinship intentionally organized to support individuals living with the effects of mental illness. Through participation in the program the members are given the opportunities to rejoin the worlds of friendships, family, important work, employment ,education, and access the services and supports they may individually need.

 

The program provides a restorative environment for people who have had their lives drastically disrupted, and need the support of others who believe that recovery from mental illness is possible for all.

 

While embracing the opportunity of  recovery,  Unity House encourages their members  to rely on their strengths and talents as contributors to their community.


What We Do...

Unity House assists the membership in furthering their vocational and educational goals. Fundamentally, work is desired by most people; therefore, the core of the program is built  upon the work that is generated during  the hours that the program is operational.

 

              The daily work of the program encompasses the skills, talents, and creative ideas and the efforts of each member are needed and encouraged.  Participation is voluntary but each member is always invited to participate in  the work which includes clerical duties, reception, food service, transportation management, outreach, maintenance, and employment and education.

 

Unity House provides the members with opportunities to return to paid employment in integrated work settings through Transitional Employment (TE), Supported Employment (SE), and Independent Employment (IE).  The employment aspect of the program is to assist the members in gaining or re-gaining the skills and confidence to venture into the workforce with the encouragement and support to be successful. 


How We Do It...

 

Unity House creates an environment and structures that ensures that there is ample opportunity for the development of meaningful relationships.

             

              Meaningful relationships between the members and the staff develop naturally as they work together side-by-side carrying out the daily activities of the program.  The role of the staff is to engage with the membership as colleagues, talent scouts, and cheerleaders.  The message that is communicated to the membership is that  he or she is wanted, needed, welcomed, and expected every day. 

 

Unity House is a community of people that are dedicated to one anotherís success, no matter how long it takes or how difficult  it is.

 

Mutual relationships, meaningful work, and significant opportunities in the community are the fundamentals of the program.
