Our Mission & Vision

Helping give children what they need most – their families

Ronald McDonald House Charities® believes when you change a child’s life, you change a family’s, which can change a community and, ultimately, the world.

As pioneers of providing family-centered care, RMHC strives to be part of the solution by improving the lives of children and their families, providing programs that strengthen families during difficult times.

Through a strong network of RMHC Chapters around the world, we are able to identify needs and carry out the RMHC mission on the ground.

  • 685 Core Programs in 65 countries and regions
  • Millions of children and families are served by RMHC each year around the world.
  • Families benefit from RMHC family-centered programs around the world each day – saving over $930 million in meal and lodging costs annually.
  • 375+ Ronald McDonald Houses.
  • 260+ Ronald McDonald Family Rooms.
