Unity Care’s mission is to provide quality youth and family programs for the purpose of creating healthier communities through lifelong partnerships.
Our goals are to provide safe, secure, and positive living environments; educate and support underserved youth; and prepare young people to pursue professions in which minorities are chronically underrepresented.
Who We Serve
Unity Care programs serve underserved and foster youth and families in Santa Clara, San Mateo, San Francisco, Placer, and El Dorado counties. Youth are referred to us from over 30 counties across California and out of state. Our signature program, founded in 1993, focuses on serving the housing needs of youth in foster care and beyond. Our mission has grown and expanded for over two decades, and today includes 22 community-based, housing, educational, and behavioral health programs aiding over 7,600 youth and family members annually.
At Unity Care, we serve as rest stops and healing centers along the journey of our youth and families’ trials and tribulations. We focus on meeting individualized needs and working together for the benefit of each child and family in our care. We put our philosophy into practice through our 1-Child 1-Plan framework and our Transcultural Engagement Model.
