This is one of the most wonderful organization in phoenix, they really do bring a lot off joy to children with life threatening illnesses and their families.
I can never forget little Trevor. Five years old facing countless hours in the hospital fighting leukemia. Room For Joy built a new bedroom. Removing the flooring and transforming his room into a garage with a drop ceiling and Murphy bed that looked like shelves filled with automotive supplies. The carpenters built a replica of Mader the truck complete with a working headlight and a radiator cap that talked. Little Trevor loved his room. A safe place to rest, to restore calm and peace in his life. Thanks to Room for Joy in bringing hope and a smile to this young boy.
I was first introduced to Room for Joy about 6 years ago. Since that time I have seen incredible rooms that have brought amazing JOY to the child and their families and friends. Each one transforms a room and transforms it to meet the dreams of each child. Each room is unique and special as is the child it is built for.
Room for Joy is a faith based organization that helps chronically ill children and there families to shed a little sun shine in there lives during a not so great time. The rooms that they design for these children are incredible! Some of the rooms are designed to hide any medical equipment these kids may have in there room so as to make them feel more at home. All of these rooms are designed around a theme that the child is interested in, then Tory and her design team go to work to create a virtual wonderland that you would never want to leave!
Amazing organization that helps chronically ill children by providing dream room makeovers. I've personally seen the joy provided to the children and their families that receive these makeovers and how this process can improve the ongoing well being for each of them... Top Notch.
As a volunteer Board Member for Room For Joy, I am truly amazed at the work that is provided to so many kids who are dealing with such difficult circumstances so far beyond what my children have ever had to deal with. What a joy to see their lives brightened by the work of Tory and her volunteers. A huge difference is made for them as they have a place to be comfortable as they hopefully heal from their health issues. Thank you Tory for helping these kids fight their fights.
I started working with Room For Joy in 2006, after seeing a piece about them on Good Morning AZ. Working with this great group of people would be reward enough, but the impact RFJ has on the families we help has changed my life. The dedication of Tory and the RFJ gang is something I've never experienced before. There is nothing these folks won't build or create to give the children the best room possible. No matter how many hours have gone into creating a room, the smile on the child's face is more than reward enough!
