Why & How?

RMHC Manitoba supports the health and well-being of children by providing a "home-away-from-home" and other services for critically ill, chronically ill and seriously injured children and their families.

Since 1984, proudly serving all pediatric medical disciplines, including high-risk pregnancies and premature babies with welcoming accommodations, meals, parking, transportation, laundry facilities, and compassionate staff and volunteers. These are just some of the ways RMHC Manitoba helps hundreds of families each year find comfort. Last year we provided 3,827 nights of accommodations to 649 families.

Why 194?

The Waldner family was RMHC Manitoba's longest staying family in 2020, spending 194 nights at our Ronald McDonald House while their son received life-saving medical treatment.
