RMHC Canada is the national foundation of support for Canada’s 15 Ronald McDonald Houses, 16 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms and 1 Ronald McDonald Care Mobile across the country. Collectively, these programs support over 25,000 families each year, providing access to quality health care and enabling family-centered care. All by keeping families close – one family at a time.
No one ever expects to be a Ronald McDonald House family. Just when it matters most, families have to leave their families, communities, jobs and support systems so they can travel to a children’s hospital to access treatment for their sick child. RMHC’s mission is to ensure that families can stay together and are supported during their healing journey.
The 15 Ronald McDonald Houses across the country provide a home for out-of-town families whose children are being treated at a nearby hospital, while the 16 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms offer families a place to rest and recharge right inside the hospital. Completing our circle of support is 1 Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles, a mobile health unit that brings medical care to underserved communities in Alberta. Together, these programs support families from across 1,800 communities each year. Follow @RMHCCanada and visit rmhc.ca for more information.
