UNITE, Inc., a non-profit organization, has been providing grief support following the loss of a baby, including miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth and infant death to parents in the Philadelphia area since 1975

UNITE recognizes that parents need to grieve following the death of their baby. Even when the child’s life was brief, parents feel the normal, painful, response of grieving. This can be particularly lonely when the baby was not yet known to family and friends.

UNITE offers a number of services to grieving parents and their caregivers including the following:

    * Grief support Groups
    * Literature
    * Educational Programs
    * Training Workshops
    * Group Development Assistance
    * Referral Assistance


Walk to Remember Luminarias

This Year’s Walk to Remember will take place on October 6, 2018, and we are adding a new way to remember and honor those touched by grief because of the loss of a child. 

This year UNITE is offering the opportunity to dedicate a Luminaria in memory of a child; in honor of someone who has walked beside you on your grief journey; or in support of a loved one grieving the loss of a child. 

The honoree’s name will appear on the Luminaria as well as the name of the person who dedicated the Luminaria. The Luminaria will be placed for display at the walk. 

If you attend the Walk, you are welcome to take all of your luminaria home with you so that you can participate in our Light Up the Night Event. Our Light Up the Night event will honor October as National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month.  Please place the Luminaria in a window or in front of your home after the walk and leave it lit until the next morning. 

You can dedicate a Luminaria for a $10 donation to UNITE by using the PayPal form below.

UNITE will send you an acknowledgment via email that you can forward to your honoree to let them know that you have remembered their child or honored their friendship in this special way. If you are purchasing a luminaria as a way to honor a bereaved parent for Mother’s Day please purchase Luminaria by May 9thso that we can acknowledge your gift in a timely manner. 

Thank you for your support!
