Unity Acres is a House of Hospitality for men in Orwell. Their mission is to provide a safe, caring and permanent home for men, and particularly those who have become chronically homeless due to alcohol or substance abuse, or other factors. Its founder and Director until his death, Father Ray McVey, believed that the Acres should not receive any kind of state or federal funding, but that it should operate and take care of its residents on the free will offerings and gifts of people who have a commitment to caring for those who cannot care for themselves.
