Donations by Check

YOU make a difference! Your financial donations to Unity Shelter are critical to providing safe shelter for those experiencing homelessness through The Mens Shelter, SafePlace & Room at the Inn. People, like you and me, who are down and need a helping hand.  

100% of your donations are spent directly on meeting operational needs.  Your donations are used to pay rent, fund staffing,

hire case managers, build microshelters, pay for permits and more.  Unity Shelter guards and manages the entrusted funds from donations and grants with extreme care.

Unity Shelter has applied for its own 501(c)3 not-for-profit status; however, the pandemic has slowed the IRS' review process. Until the IRS has approved our application, please make your contributions to First Congregational United Church of Christ. It is an established non-profit organization which will protect any tax deductions for which your donations may qualify. Be sure to specify that the donation is for Unity Shelter. This will ensure that your donations are used for Unity Shelter's operations. Thank you for your generosity!
