What is Mattea's Joy?
Mattea's Joy is a non-profit organization that provides meals
monthly to families that have children at the University of
Chicago Comer Children's Hospital as well as at the Ronald
McDonald House near Comer Children's Hospital. Care Packages
are brought to the families at the hospital that include snacks
and any additional items, such as fuzzy socks in the cold
months, to support and comfort families.
In addition, we provide transfer packages to local families
who are transferred to Comer from Riverside Hospital and Provena
St. Mary's Hospital in Kankakee that include parking stickers,
a food gift card, gas card, and directions and tips from parents
who have been there before.
