Your sense of normal changes when your child receives a life-threatening diagnosis and your family must uproot themselves far from their home to seek essential medical treatment. It may be weeks, months, or even over a year until you are back at home, surrounded by your support system.

 

Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon (RMH BC) cares for families of children whose health needs take them far from home and provides accommodation, comfort, compassion and a sense of community for the whole family.

 

Families like the Harris Family from Smithers, BC can travel over hundreds of kilometers to Vancouver to be beside their sick child and often arrive in Vancouver unexpectedly and overwhelmed by their situation. 

That's where RMH BC comes in.

RMH BC provides families with a place to stay, talk to other families that understand their struggles and satisfy other needs that some families aren't even aware that they have. By easing the financial and emotional burdens of caregivers and by taking care of important practical needs, our House allows parents to focus entirely on caring for themselves and their sick child.

2000 families stay at RMH BC each year and we need help to provide them with the support they need. RMH BC does not receive government funding, and as a result relies on the generous support of individuals like you to provide necessary services and programs to families.
