1o0% of our operating support is locally raised, allowing our House to stay open all day, every day; enabling our staff and volunteers to make and deliver food and activity kits to the pediatric units of local hospitals; and empowering the siblings of Richmond’s youngest patients with hands-on arts and crafts and educational programs through our Sibling Center in the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU. With your help, RMHC Richmond can provide a home away from home for the families of children who are receiving medical treatment in Richmond hospitals, keeping them close to one another and the care they need.
Will my gift make a difference?
Yes. While no family is turned away, only 10% of families are able to pay for their stay in full, and on average, a family pays $2.27 a night. However, thanks to thousands of Richmond volunteers, in-kind donations, and partnerships, we are able to keep our expenses to a minimum. This means that every gift makes a difference in the life of a family.
