Bringing the gift of hope and comfort to families and patients in Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care Units.

Our Vision:
Be A-Maise-ing!

Team A.Maise, Inc. is a 501(c)3, veteran founded, nonprofit organization working to bring the gift of hope and comfort to families and children as they walk through some of life’s darkest valleys. We believe that with simple acts of kindness and love, the light of hope will shine through to help the families feel renewed and encouraged. 

 Our Work: 

When a child is admitted to the hospital, families are often left unprepared for the sudden changes that occur in their daily lives and routines.

Our programs aim to reduce the stress that comes with those changes by offering items that provide comfort and encourage self-care. We offer several programs benefiting families at Wolfson Children's Hospital and UF Health Pediatrics in Jacksonville, Florida. These include our Comfort Cart, Snack Cart & Coffee Bar Program, and NICU/PICU Clothing Pantry.

 Support Us: 

Our work is made possible by the kindness and generosity of our supporters. There are several ways to contribute to Team A.Maise:

Anyone can be A-Maise-ing!




We started Team A.Maise in honor of our daughter, Ashlyn Maise Leide

August 18, 2019 - December 4, 2019

She inspired us to Be A-Maise-ing to others, especially when they need it most. Due to a rare and fatal lung disorder, Ashlyn was in the PICU for a month before she passed away. During that difficult time, our family was touched by the kindness and generosity shown to us by complete strangers. We thank our supporters, from the bottom of our hearts, for helping us to continue that legacy in Ashlyn's memory by offering the same kindness to others.

Dear Team A.Maise,

On behalf of the music therapy program at Wolfson Children's Hospital, thank you so much for the stethoscope recording device. With this technology, the department will be able to provide heartbeat recordings and songs to families otherwise not served. 

We will utilize this technology to begin a new program that will train staff members on how to record so that all families have access to the living memory of a heartbeat. 

Thank you again for your contribution!
