Bringing the gift of hope and comfort to families and patients in Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care Units.
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 and help the families feel renewed and encouraged.
When a child is admitted to the hospital, families are left unprepared for the sudden changes that occur in their daily lives and routines.
Our programs aim to reduce the stress that often 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 Parent Pack, the Gift Card Program, the Comfort & Care Package Program, and the Snack Cart & Coffee Bar Program.
Our work is made possible by monetary and in-kind donations given by our generous supporters. There are several ways to contribute to Team A.Maise:

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!
Morgan Maxwell, MT-BC
Meet Our New Partner: Cape Ivy
These ponchos are A-Maise-ing because they're designed with IV lines and medical equipment in mind. We are so thankful to have Cape Ivy on our team.
"Hospitals are cold. Be warm."
Hospitals can get chilly, especially for teens, children, and toddlers. Thanks to our newest partner, Cape Ivy, patients at UF Health Pediatrics and Wolfson Children's Hospital can keep warm in the colorful fleece ponchos that they provide.
“Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged,
for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
