About

“Nothing can compare to living at the Ronald McDonald House. We had other families around to help, and it was calming. It was our home. The House was our sanctuary.” -Trinela, mother to House Hero Emerson

Our Mission
 
Ronald McDonald House Charities® Alberta supports families seeking vital medical treatment for their seriously ill or injured child. Our warm, compassionate Houses provide a home-away-from-home for families who need to travel for medical reasons. When those families are experiencing one of the most difficult times of their lives – we offer them comfort in being able to stay together.
 
Since the first Houses were built in Alberta in 1985 -we have supported tens of thousands of families. Every year thousands will stay at one of Alberta’s Ronald McDonald Houses. These stays can be a couple of nights or last for weeks or months at a time. 
 
Each Ronald McDonald House® has family suites for families to rest. The Houses have open kitchens where a family can sit down and share a homemade meal together alongside other families going through similar experiences. The sense of community enables families to rely on one another when they need it most.
 
A Ronald McDonald House will save a family hundreds to thousands of dollars on accommodation, transportation, meals, laundry and much more. Having a Ronald McDonald House close to the hospital is an important part of family-centred care.
