Unity of Life is a public benefit non profit organization founded in 2007.
Our mission is to prevent and eliminate homelessness through family preservation and unification of our communities. Founder Devona E. Chiles saw an under-served need to provide assistance to those on the verge of homelessness and educate the community about who and what homelessness looks like and how it affects our community. Our Community Cares Program provides assistance to low and moderate income individuals and families in California, who are either not being supported by or not eligible for government assistance, with food, toiletries, utility and rent assistance, and other referrals. This program is supported by the generous donations of individuals and companies in the community and because of them we have provided assistance to over 700 families in need and we are striving to do more. Our vision – to provide affordable housing, stable programs and resources for homeless and low to moderate income individuals and families in need. A world free of poverty.
"So much of who I am has gone into this organization and I am happy to share it with you. It saddens me to know there are families struggling to maintain the basic necessities of life; a home, food and clothes. I founded this organization because I truly believe that no man should have to want for shelter or food. Unity of Life will strengthen communities and families through educational programs and affordable housing, while changing the perception of homelessness. My purpose is to help and serve those in need and encourage all people to reach their goals. Thank you again for visiting and remember…”as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people.” – Galations 6:10"
