Family with a new born baby

Many families travel far from home to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children. Often, it can be a long time to be away from home, or to divide a family. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having their mom and dad close by for love and support. We believe families are stronger when they're together, and we're here to help.

Ronald McDonald House Charities®

The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is to provide a supportive place for families to stay while their child is receiving medical care. Guiding us in our mission are our core values:

  • Focusing on the critical needs of children.
  • Celebrating the diversity of the programs we offer and the staff, volunteers and donors who make them possible.
  • Staying true to our heritage of 40 years of responsible stewardship.
  • Operating with accountability and transparency.
