Give seriously ill children what they need most: Their family.


What do you do if your child needs hospital treatment and your family lives far away?

In Canada, 2 out of 3 families live outside a city with a specialty children's hospital and must travel for medical treatment if their child becomes seriously ill. Ronald McDonald House Charities provides a place for families to stay together, steps away from a children’s hospital. Because when families stay together, sick children get stronger.

Because of your support, RMHC Canada can:

More families need our help.

While in an average year, RMHC across Canada serves more than 26,000 families, we estimate we are meeting just 20-30%* of the need for our programs.

In an average year, up to 45,000* Canadian families are left without the support of the RMHC House Program. We are on a mission to change that, and we need your help! Together, we can make sure that no family is turned away.
