Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada have remained committed to continuing to serve existing families with sick children during this difficult time: providing overnight accommodations, meals and support.
Select Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, located right inside the hospital, while currently suspended, have temporarily been repurposed to provide rest and respite for frontline healthcare workers. The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, which traditionally operates in underserved communities in Alberta, has been redeployed as a maternity clinic in Calgary.
While we are unable to accept new families right now, we are working hard to put the screening, health and safety programs in place to begin welcoming more families back as soon as we can.
Always, but especially now, we feel deep gratitude for our community and healthcare partners, who together are helping families with sick children when they need it most.
