The next $15,000 donated to the fund will provide double impact.
Funds raised by June 1st, 2022 will be eligible for matching. UNITI is matching all donations up to $15,000 to help ensure the fund is able to provide financial support to community members who, without assistance, would not be able to live in South Surrey.
The UNITI Fund at SurreyCares supports Surrey residents with intellectual disabilities living in tenuous housing. Income from the fund will be disbursed to UNITI through the Semiahmoo Foundation on an annual basis
UNITI partner Peninsula Housing Estates Society believes people deserve the opportunity to live in inclusive and affordable housing in their community. An initial contribution of $10,000 has been made by UNITI to reinforce this goal. This fund and the matching campaign are our commitment to ensuring people have housing options that support a diverse and healthy community.
This support may include rent assistance for those who have experienced hardships such as job loss, family emergencies, and illness -
Health items to ensure the quality of life and health and safety, such as equipment and small renovations needed to assist in independent living
Grocery items for people experiencing food insecurity
Assistance to pay some bills
Household items need to be replaced, but there are no immediate funds to do so
