About Us

We support families with sick children throughout their healthcare journey.

 

RMHC® Richmond programs and services are made possible through the generous financial and in-kind contributions of individual donors, corporate partners and sponsors. Our programs are fueled by the dedication and commitment of thousands of volunteers. We are so grateful for the amazing support we receive from the Richmond community as we continue to fulfill our mission.

At RMHC Richmond, we offer several unique programs that provide family-centered care and services to help families get through the most challenging time in their lives

Ronald McDonald House® is located on Monument Avenue in Richmond, VA. The House is our cornerstone program that provides temporary housing and support services for families with a child being seen in any local medical facility and must travel far from home for their child’s care.

Ronald McDonald Family Room®  The Family Rooms at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU and Bon Secours St. Mary’s Hospital are just footsteps from the pediatric intensive care units. These rooms provide a place for parents to recharge, grab a bite to eat or get the well-deserved rest they need to be strong for their children.

Happy Wheels hospitality carts travel the hospital hallways visiting families and patients on pediatric floors of local area hospitals. Happy Wheels carts are operated by volunteers and stocked with snacks, toiletries, activities, and toys to provide small comforts that go straight to children’s hospital rooms.

Lunches with Love is our meal delivery program that provides families with access to a nutritious lunch at the hospital, relieving the financial burden from families who are focusing on their child’s medical care. Lunches are provided by volunteers and are delivered to local pediatric and neonatal units at local area hospitals.

The RMHC Sibling Center reduces stress and inspires fun by providing a safe, developmentally appropriate environment for brothers and sisters of children receiving care in the Children’s Pavilion at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU and in nearby inpatient units.

By supporting RMHC Richmond, our donors and volunteers keep families together and close to the care they need, relieving financial and logistical burdens for thousands of families every year. Since we opened our doors in 1980, we have never closed them. Our House on Monument Avenue and our rooms within hospitals give families the comforts and feeling of home.
