Helping families with critically ill kids find joy in the journey.
Mattea's Joy 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.
We have served dinner to over 10,000 people to date!
In addition, we provide transfer packages to local families who are transferred to Comer from Riverside Hospital and Presence 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.

Weber Grill Chicago donates quarterly to our dinner project at Comer Children's Hospital. We provide a hot, yummy dinner to approximately 100-125 people every second Thursday of the month to families with sick kids at Comer. Weber Grill provides this meal once a quarter at no charge. This is HUGE and saves us so much money as an organization due to their generosity.
