From the time that Houston's Ronald McDonald House opened its doors 30 years ago in 1981, its mission has been to offer a home away from home to the families of children undergoing treatment for cancer and other life-threatening illnesses at a Texas Medical Center institution. Houston's RMH operates several locations that offer home-like environments to these seriously ill children and their families:
50 bedroom House on Holcombe Boulevard20 bedroom House inside Texas Children's Hospital14 bedroom House inside Children's Memorial Hermann HospitalCardiovascular ICU Family Room at Texas Children's HospitalHematology/Oncology Inpatient Family Room at Texas Children's HospitalOutpatient Family Room at Texas Children's HospitalCookie Corner at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center
Each of these facilities serves a different population. The Holcombe House is generally home to families from outside Houston while the in-hospital facilities primarily serve families from the greater Houston area. At Houston's Ronald McDonald House, the families find comfort, encouragement and support from volunteers, staff and other families, who share similar experiences, during an unimaginably difficult time in their lives.
Houston's Ronald McDonald House is able to provide these services because of the generous gifts of time and financial support provided by individuals, companies, and foundations throughout the Houston community.
Mission: Houston's Ronald McDonald House offers a home away from home providing care, compassion and hope to families with seriously ill children being treated in Texas Medical Center member institutions.
