About Ronald McDonald House Northern Alberta:

Founded in 1986, Ronald McDonald House Northern Alberta (RMHNA) accommodates families with seriously ill children while they receive treatment in local Edmonton hospitals. RMHNA’s House helps families regain a sense of normalcy while dealing with the emotional and financial challenges related to their child’s medical treatment.

RMHNA’s House offers living quarters and meal services for up to 32 families at a time while their children receive treatment at the Stollery Children’s Hospital, Royal Alexandra Hospital, or Grey Nuns Hospital in Edmonton. In 2015, operating and facilities expenses made up 70% of program costs. RMHNA housed 1,394 people in 2015, equivalent to 10,977 nights of comfort according to the charity’s 2015 annual report. The report also states that over 48% of the families it housed during the year were from Northern Alberta. The charity offers shuttle services to families staying at the House, driving them to and from the hospital at which their child is receiving treatment. The shuttle made 11,566 trips in 2015.

Ronald McDonald House of Northern Alberta runs a nutrition program called Meals that Mend that supplies breakfast, lunch and dinner to families of seriously ill children staying at the House. Meals that Mend served 836 meals in 2015, a 29% increase from the year before. RMHNA also has a Fuel for Families program that delivers lunches to the Stollery Children’s Hospital – the charity delivered 3,300 lunches in 2015 and states that these lunches saved families over $36,000.

Ronald McDonald House of Northern Alberta also runs education and recreation programs for children staying at the House, which made up 16% of program costs in 2015.
