Unity Care is a California-based nonprofit organization that provides safe, stable, and affordable housing for youth and young adults as they age out of foster care and provides them with the supportive services they need to achieve self-sufficiency.
André left his lucrative Silicon Valley career in high-tech sales to start Unity Care and fulfill his mission to advance and evolve foster care of young adults.
25 years since its inception, Unity Care has served thousands of foster children and families, while stimulating revolutionary improvements in foster care and public education.
Some of André’s insights:
– The executive team should be as diverse as the community it serves.
– Engage communities outside the organization.
– Give permission to your staff to go deeper and question how the leaders show up.
