Unity New Orleans

The Tulane University Fall 2016 evaluators found their $10,000 grant to Unity New Orleans to be a good decision with a good outcome. Unity New Orleans goal is to help end homelessness. In 2017, this program impacted the lives of 1074 single people and family members who had experienced homelessness by providing them with move-in kits of linens, kitchenware and toiletries, furniture and other household goods. The grant paid for 8 months of rent at their small warehouse which is staffed by one full-time employee and one AmeriCorps VISTA member. During the last two months of 2017, they housed 56 homeless families and 182 vulnerable, chronically homeless individuals as part of the Home for the Holidays Campaign.
