Why We EXIST
Do YOU have ROOM for Joy?
Please take a few moments and share in some of the Joy of the last 3 years.
Imagine the look on a child’s face the first time they walk into the bedroom they’ve always dreamed of.
A 6-year-old boy opening the door to his very own Yankee Stadium. A 7-year-old girl surrounded by a fairytale filled with castles and princesses.
Now imagine the pure joy and excitement that such a bedroom could bring to these children after returning from a painful chemotherapy session or hospitalization from yet another surgery. When returning home from the hospital, they are welcomed by the warmth and infinite possibilities of a bedroom designed around everything they love and dream about.
Room For Joy is an organization dedicated to creating such bedrooms and fulfilling these dreams for chronically ill children.
Our purpose is to design and create positive, imaginative bedroom environments with the hope of enhancing a child’s healing process.
The organization creates bedrooms based on each child’s imagination and unique interests using wall murals, custom furniture and creative accessories to change bedrooms into fantasy lands.
When designing and building the furniture time is dedicated to concealing the medical equipment to provide a room that becomes a work of art replacing the sterile look of a medical room.
They say that happiness and laughter are the best medicine and Room for Joy creates bedrooms that provide these vital elements for children during their medical treatment and subsequent healing process.
Join us in granting more children the opportunity to forget, if only for a moment, the pain and suffering they are enduring, and revel in the joy of just simply being a child.
