Issues: Health

Location: P.O. Box 40725 Tucson AZ 85717 USA

Mission: The mission of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern Arizona is to provide a "Home Away from Home" for families who travel to Tucson seeking medical treatment or hospitalization for the serious illness or injury of a child. RMHC was founded with the understanding that in addition to quality medical care, sick children need the comfort and support of their family. A place where the family can remain close. In addition to serving those families who have traveled outside of Tucson,  RMHC established the Ronald McDonald Family Room to support those families who are local. Located inside Diamond Children''s Medical Center, it offers families of pediatric patients a place to relax, away from the stresses of the hospital, while still being close to their children. The Family Room offers families privacy and personal comfort as well as the opportunity for a light snack, a quiet room to read or to interact with other families who may be experiencing similar circumstances. 
Programs: The Ronald McDonald House (RMH) is a "home away from home" for families of children who travel to Tucson for hospitalization or treatment of a serious illness or injury. RMH offers families their own room and bathroom, use of two laundry rooms, a playroom, computer room and living, dining and family areas. Our cost per room at the Ronald McDonald House is $90.00 per night per family. We ask the families to contribute $15 per night, however, if they are unable to contribute this amount, we simply waive the fee. RMH is open to any family via a referral, with a child under 21, who must travel to Tucson to receive medical care for their child.

I doubt that I will have another position in my career that will impact me as deeply as my work at RMHC did. The impact that Ronald McDonald House programs have on sick kids and their families is truly remarkable. For every sad day, every loss, every setback, there is a successful treatment, a triumph, a survival. Seeing what children and their families are capable of was an inspiration that I will carry with me throughout my life. I am so thankful for the opportunity to have done my part to help them in their time of need. The staff, the volunteers, and the Board are all amazingly dedicated and loving people who truly dedicate every day to the aid and support of the children they serve. I strongly encourage others to get involved at Tucson's Ronald McDonald House. It is sure to be a life-changing experience!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

person, on a daily basis. Some of the kids and families I met there will stay with me throughout my life and remain an inspiration to me daily.
