RMHC give families who don’t live near a children’s hospital, a warm and compassionate home to stay together while their child is being treated at a nearby hospital, just steps away.
More than just accommodation for families with sick children, RMHC provide families with: private family bedrooms, fully equipped kitchens, laundry facilities & playrooms.
They also offer supportive, inclusive services such as: accredited education programs, special suites for children with suppressed immune systems, recreational activities, non-clinical support services, sibling support services.
Unfortunately, last year they had to turn away 7242 families - that's almost 20 families day. Which is why we need to help them grow, so they can help even more families stay together when they need it the most.
