Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Salvation Army

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 In August of 2007 Bobbi & John decided to create a non-profit that grants wishes not only to Johns patients 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. , Johns hospice work 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.

Programs: Program expenses (final wishes of terminally ill adults)

My family and I were blessed by the kindness and selflessness of Bobbi and John Robinson with Unity when our dog went missing in Uniontown, PA. They are such a wonderful couple with a wonderful charity, full of love and light, looking to help make others lives better and more fulfilling.

This is a great organization. .I have seen many beautiful moments shared and wishes granted. I know how important a person's dying wish can be..when my husband was sick he wanted to go on a train trip and I made it happen but most people in that situation can not make it happen and that is where the beautiful people of unity ome in..I had the opportunity to donate once and it was the best experience. .unity is the best and has the best people that love what they do and how the client feels when the wish is granted is priceless to them but they need people like us to help along the way.

I was approached at work by John and Bobbi several years ago. They were looking for a donation of internet service for a few months so a wish recipient could stay in contact with her family. I had just read an article in a local paper about their mission, so I was familiar with their organization. I was more than happy to help them, and approached my boss to see what we could provide. He was on board instantly, and we got everything set up to help for them. They were so appreciative of the help, and could not thank us enough. I have remained in contact with them over the years, and have donated what I can when I can as this is such a wonderful, caring and compassionate group! Im so fortunate to know them, and will continue to support them!

The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others.

Unity, A Journey of Hope is one of those rare groups that truely puts it's heart into every aspect of their mission. I have been fortunate enough to know the founders and a few of the staff for several years now and it is inspiring to say the least to see the life changing acts they always seem to fullfill. The ability to grant wishes using a small pool of funds and volunteers is an absolute standout in this organization. That is one of the reasons why the organization I belong to has held fundraisers for this deserving charity for several years now. One look at the list of their accomplishments and anyone can see the dedication of Unity to aiding those in need. What strikes me the most is the personal sacifices that I see constantly occuring within this group. To put others well-being ahead of one's self is a very rare quality these days and it is one of the main reasons that I felt obligated to write this review. If you have any interaction with this organization, it will be quite easy to see why they deserve the praise that is given to them.

I think this is a fabulous non-profit organization!! My family has sent donations to help both them and their ambassador, Journey, for his schooling to become a therapy dog. They do their best to make wishes come true for adults that have a life-limiting illness. They put their heart and soul into making these wishes come together and go to awesome lengths using their time and resources. I would absolutely recommend this group to anyone!!
