About Ronald McDonald House Charities:

Founded in 1982, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is a national organization that supports Canadian families with sick children through its network of Ronald McDonald Houses and their programs. Ronald McDonald Houses provide a home away from home for families with sick children who are staying at a nearby hospital. They have qualified staff and dedicated volunteers who take care of the day-to-day essentials of running a home, and offer programs ranging from dinner programs to meditation. Family Rooms are in children’s hospitals or in houses and provide a calm and supportive space for families. Their Care Mobiles deliver healthcare to vulnerable communities.

RMHC reports that 70% of Canadians live outside a city with a children’s hospital, which means that they must travel for medical care if their child is seriously sick or injured. There are currently 15 houses, 16 Family Rooms and 2 Care Mobiles across Canada. It supported 22,377 Canadian families in F2014 with 10,636 families staying at a Ronald McDonald House and 10,773 families using the Family Rooms and almost 1000 families helped through its Care Mobile programs.

In F2014, its houses had 3,033 families on a waitlist and 2,462 families were turned away. To meet the need, RMHC anticipates to build 4 new houses and 21 new family rooms for a total of 661 bedrooms over the next five years.
