Tasks Unlimited provides housing, employment, and mental health services for people with serious and persistent mental illness. 

Since our founding in 1970, we have been dedicated to providing resources that support people with mental illness in gaining stability and living full and independent lives. Our model is comprehensive and based on principles of interdependence, community and the value of meaningful work.

Peter’s story:

“I hadn’t given up before, but it has been a refreshing change of pace and a new look into humanity from what I had seen in my darker days. You know, like one of the best things you can do for yourself is get a job. To people who just don’t believe that they can, try it. Go after your dream job.”

Peter describes the years before he came to Tasks as a decade of cycling between institutions, drug use, and uncontrolled mental illness. He recalls one period when he went for an entire month without shoes, having only a pair of slippers for his feet.

Peter learned of Tasks’ Training Center through a chemical dependency program. After graduating from the Training Center he moved to the Transition Lodge and participated in the Jobs Training Program. There were setbacks, but he kept working toward his goals of staying sober and getting a job. He worked with Kim, the Placement Coordinator, to revamp his resume and email. He credits the good rapport he had with his case manager, Katrina, as a major factor in his success in treatment and connecting to sober housing. After applying for a number of jobs, he landed his top choice—a position in a floral shop.

We have two funds most in need of your support this year: 

Northeast Outreach & Opportunity Center: This fund helps us sustain and grow our drop-in center services to adults experiencing or at risk of homelessness, providing mental health supports, employment resources, housing stabilization services, a warm meal, and other basic needs. 

Client Emergency Needs Fund: This fund provides critical assistance for clients who are in financial need and is a safety net that ensures help is there when needed as injuries, health issues, and numerous other factors continue to affect our client’s ability to work. 

Whether you donate today, tomorrow, or simply share our message with someone - thank you. Your kindness and support during these times has not gone unnoticed. We would not be able to do what we do without your support and generosity. Thank you.
