Our Impact

Today, RMHC is part of the fabric of Canada’s paediatric health care system. Across Canada, RMHC’s 34 programs provide families with a sick child with a home to stay at where they can sleep, share meals, do laundry, and connect with other families, making their journey a little easier.

 “Without RMHC, my family and I would have experienced significant financial hardship. Hotel costs alone would have put us out over $18,000 in out-of-pocket expenses. That doesn’t even include costs for meals, gas, etc. RMHC truly takes care of so much to help keep the family surviving financially.” – Ivan and Shianne Trudel, RMHC Saskatchewan

“When your child gets sick and there’s nothing you can do about it, it’s devastating. But RMHC Toronto allowed us to remain a family and focus on helping Manning get better. We wouldn’t be where we are today without this place.” - The Anderson Family, RMHC Toronto
