Who we are
About the Founder
Ingrid Butaya is the heart of WE ARE UNO.
Already as a child she had the dream to help the poor. It has been her wish and work to improve the housed and unhoused communities.
WE ARE UNO
At present we provide warm homemade vegan meals to the houseless people at 3 times a week. We provide them clothes, shoes, phones, blankets, etc.
We also support the unhoused people to cultivate their own spirituality no matter of what religious denomination. Our best reward and joy is to hear them telling us that we bring them hope and a listening ear.
A generous person donated an RV to We are Uno, it will be used to “Give a Break” to individuals that need shelter from 1 to 3 nights. Right now the RV is housing individuals who need permanent shelter.
The bigger vision is to create an intentional vegan community free from alcohol, pot and drugs, for those who wish to join it. This will be a sanctuary to support like-minded people intending to live a drug-free life. Inner spirituality will be the basis of this sanctuary.
Why do we use the word unhoused instead of homeless?
As a faith-based organization we know that the divine Spirit has already given every individual a home for refuge and strength.
