Elea Today

Elea Institute is a nonprofit charitable organization created out of the proceeds from the 2022 sale of JourneyCare, a nonprofit hospice agency that stood at the forefront of hospice and palliative care in the greater Chicago metropolitan area.  

A primary goal of Elea Institute is to honor our heritage and advance the missions that guided JourneyCare and its predecessor organizations: to ensure that all people have access to high-quality hospice and palliative care.

Elea Institute is grateful for the many years of generous donor giving that facilitated the work of our predecessor organizations and supporting foundations. We also appreciate those individuals, foundations, and companies that participated in the capital campaigns enabling the building of two of the earliest freestanding inpatient hospice facilities in Illinois.
