About Ronald McDonald House Newfoundland and Labrador:

Officially opened on September 27, 2012, the Ronald McDonald House of Newfoundland and Labrador (RMHNL) provides a home-away-from-home for sick children, and their families, who must travel to St. John's, to receive specialized pediatric care and treatment at the nearby Janeway Children's Health and Rehabilitation Centre. The House, with 15 bedrooms, is specifically designed to provide a home environment for sick children, their siblings and their parents. Each room is decorated with bright colors, comfortable furniture and child-inspired accessories.

The cornerstone of the house is its family support programs that include a quilting program, a home dinner program, and celebrations on special days. The house expects to serve 500 families per year.

RMHNL asks that families make a minimal per night donation to stay at the house. McDonald's Restaurants of Canada and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Canada provide in-kind and financial donations raised through events, suppliers, coin boxes and McHappy Day events.

Financial Review:

In F2014, RMHNL's administrative costs were 10% of revenues, while fundraising costs were 8% of donations. RMHNL’s funding reserves amounted to $1.5m which covered the annual program costs 1.7 times.
