Who We Are
Established in 1993, Unity Care is a national accredited, strengths-based, family-focused, and culturally proficient youth and family agency. Unity Care’s goal is to provide safe, stable and affordable housing for youth and young adults as they age out of foster care and to provide them with the supportive services they need to achieve self-sufficiency.
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 housing and programs serve transitional age foster youth (TAY) and families ages 16–21 in Santa Clara, San Mateo, San Francisco, Placer, and El Dorado counties. Our signature program, founded in 1993, focuses on serving the housing needs of youth in foster care and beyond.
At Unity Care, 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, which promotes effective and efficient teamwork through one service delivery plan for each youth or family referred to our care.
Transcultural Engagement Model
With a focus on cultural proficiency that differentiates us from other providers, our Transcultural Engagement Model is a significant employee training component that incorporates many cultural perspectives, appreciates differences, values the unique contributions of diverse groups, and promotes learning from many orientations.
