About Ronald McDonald House Toronto:

Ronald McDonald House Toronto (RMHT), formally known as Toronto Children’s Care Inc., accommodates families of seriously ill children while they receive treatment in local Toronto hospitals. Founded in 1981, RMHT runs the largest Ronald McDonald House in the world.

Ronald McDonald House Toronto’s House is less than half a kilometer away from Sick Kids Hospital in downtown Toronto and can hold 81 families at a time. RMHT charges families $15 per night and gives sick children the opportunity to live with their families while receiving treatment. RMHT housed 748 families in 2015 and reports a 94% satisfaction rate for the year. The House’s amenities include sleeping quarters, a kitchen, laundry facilities, a media room and a kids clubhouse.

Ronald McDonald House Toronto also has Family Rooms in four Toronto hospitals for families to escape the traditional hospital setting while staying close to their child in care. Family Rooms offer lounge rooms, laundry facilities, kitchens and napping areas meant only for the families of children receiving treatment. RMHT served 2,384 families in 2015 with its Family Rooms, which is an 85% increase compared to the previous year. On average, the Family Rooms had 214 visitors every day. In response to increasing demand, Ronald McDonald House Charities Toronto opened two Family Rooms in Rouge Valley Centenary in December 2015. This marks the charity’s fourth Family Room location and the charity plans to open more in the next two years.
