Donate to Unitarian House

The financial support of our cherished donors helps us to maintain and update Unitarian House so that our residents can continue to enjoy the comforts and security of ‘Home.’ Thank you!

Unitarian House is a non-profit charitable organization originally conceived in 1973 as an outreach program to provide seniors with affordable accommodation and offering graduated medical care. Over the years, we have gained an outstanding reputation as a caring, vibrant and multi-faceted community of residents, staff and volunteers. Our residents enjoy, and contribute to, many stimulating activities and a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere that feels like home.

We pride ourselves in keeping Unitarian House affordable and, as a charitable, non-profit organization, we have strict limits on rental rates. However, as with any home, maintenance, renovations and upgrades are continually required. Therefore, we must rely on our cherished donors and volunteers to help us in these areas so that our residents can continue to enjoy the comforts and security of ‘Home.’
