Ronald McDonald Houses

When a child is seriously ill, many families will travel for miles to seek treatment that can last for weeks or even months.
And during this time, children will want mom and dad close so that treatments don’t seem as scary as they often can be.

Ronald McDonald Houses were founded to keep families close, because no family should have to worry about where they can afford to stay, where their next meal is coming from, or how far they are from their child in the hospital. We believe that children heal better when their families are close.

In the Greater Houston and Galveston area, RMHC of Greater Houston/Galveston is proud to support two Ronald McDonald House Chapters serving the Texas Medical Center and Galveston Island Medical Center with annual grants.
At every Ronald McDonald House, families have access to:
  • Home-cooked meals
  • Private bedrooms
  • Playrooms for children
  • A kitchen area that includes a stove and microwave
  • Shower and laundry facilities
  • And more…
