Mission:
We at Unity, A Journey of Hope have built a strong foundation from our Southwestern Pennsylvania roots and growing our Non-Profit Organization to granting over 100 wishes to date. Unity, A Journey of Hope

Created in the spring of 2007 and has since become a non-profit, tax-exempt, public charity.

Unity, A Journey of hope presently services:

Southwestern Pennsylvania, the greater Pittsburgh and surrounding tri-state areas.

Founded in Vanderbilt, PA., Fayette County.
built circa 1854, known to neighbors as "The Unity School."

Following a life-time dream John & Bobbi remodeled their home in 2001 and in September of 2005, they opened "Unity a Journey Home, llc" Southwestern Pennsylvania's first residential hospice house. Each resident was granted wish(s) as part of the care and therapy they received. During the operation of the hospice granting wishes as Unity does now was never a thought until much later.

In August of 2007 Bobbi & John decided to create a non-profit that grants wishes not only to their residents, but they extended their hands to the surrounding community in order to grant wishes.

This endeavor has proven to be a true blessing to the Robinson's. The hospice house is no longer in operation, but it was a stepping stone to what is now named "Unity, A Journey of Hope." Granting wishes to adults with life-limiting illnesses.

Unity from its humble beginnings has grown into a national wish granting organization. Within this past year their hands have indeed stretched far beyond their local community granting wishes in Houston Texas, Denver Colorado, New Jersey, and Chicago Illinois as well as the greater Pittsburgh area.

Unity's reach is not limited. Unity has "Operation Christmas Wish" where Unity gives the spirit of Christmas to families, whose parent has a life-limiting illness and cannot afford Christmas.

Unity also "Adopts a Veteran" each year to say "Thanks for your service."

Unity also leases out Durable Medical Equipment to people who may fall through the cracks and have needs that insurance can't help with.

So won't you please consider helping unity grow, become a volunteer, volunteer your expertise, donate, get involved in making Unity a premier wish granting organization and like our motto states, with YOU and UNITY we will...

"Change one life, one wish at a time..."

To "Change One Life, One Wish at a Time" Unity grants wishes to adults 18 years of age and older with life-limiting illnesses.

This organization, Unity, A Journey of Hope, really is fantastic. My mom, who is an unbelievable Steelers fan, wanted nothing more than to see Hines Ward receive his Dapper Dan Lifetime Achievement award. The cost of tickets was too much as she was in the middle of her battle with cancer. Here ... more »

I was involved in a recent fundraiser for Unity. I was so impressed by all the help from all volunteers in attendance. Unity gives so much of themselves so they can give to others. When they say " Changing Lives One Wish at a Time" , they really mean it... more »
