KEEPING FAMILIES CLOSE(TM)
Important notice re: 2019 Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19)
For the safety of our families, we are temporarily suspending our volunteer programs and are restricting visitors to Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon. At this time, only guest families and essential staff are permitted in the House.
We are continuing to provide accommodation and support for families in need, and we thank our wonderful community for helping to keep us safe.
WHY DO FAMILIES
NEED YOUR HELP?
When a child is seriously ill, the specialization required for their major medical procedure may only be available far from home. Treatment for illnesses such as leukemia, brain tumours or cystic fibrosis requires lengthy out-of-town hospitalization.
RMH BC & Yukon provides accommodation for these families, so they can be close to their seriously ill children undergoing treatment. The House is a place of comfort, healing, and a home away from home for kids and families from all across BC and Yukon—like Prince George, Kamloops, Whitehorse and Victoria. But the cost to accommodate over 2000 families per year is expensive and isn't possible without the generosity of people like you.
HOW YOUR DONATION DOLLARS HELP
What Stops Families From Being Together?
When the unthinkable happens and a family is uprooted for their child’s critical medical treatment, there are many barriers they must overcome to stay together. Hotel stays are expensive, siblings need to be cared for, and staying in the hospital long term is unsustainable. That’s where the House comes in—providing accommodation, comfort, compassion, and a sense of community to these families in need.
But caring for so many families is expensive and isn't possible without the generosity of people just like you.
