I cannot say enough about the Austin TX RMHC. The people involved from the volunteers to the the top are the most amazing caring individuals you would ever want to meet. They are doing Gods work. My husband was ill a few years back and I know how hard it was taking him back and forth to the hospital, making a grown man go in for his Chemo treatments, etc. I cannot imagine what that must be like to go through with a child, much less have to be in another city away from home. The amazing simple things the Austin Ronald McDonald House provides to families in these situations are priceless. Having a sick child is an awful thought, and already comes with a high financial burden, but imagine having to pay for weeks of hotel rooms, food, and being away from friends and family.
If you have the opportunity please look into this amazing charity. Give if you can of your time or your donations. Take a tour. You will be surprised at what they provide, who they provide it to, and how easily you can make a difference.

The Great!

I have not personally experienced the use of the Austin RMHC, however I have a few friends who have and say they are not sure how they could have ever made it though their children's ordeals without the Austin RMHC.

Help them raise more funds to help more people. They are already doing everything right.

My sister & I were in a terrible car accident, which killed her and left me with many severe internal injuries. The Austin Ronald McDonald House was my famlies home away from home during those weeks immediately after. It wasn't just the convenience of a home, though, but the love and support of the volunteers and families in the house who made a lasting impact. We have a stone outside for my sister's memory - and it always touches our hearts to stop by and find it. The new location is beautiful - and they've created a true haven for families. I recently moved back to the area, and my team & I at Starbucks are volunteering to prepare meals. Our hearts and lives are touched forever. Thank you, RMHC, for all that you do...

When I was injured, my family was able to stay nearby - a home away from home - a place full of love!

Four years ago, after spending a week with a friend whose son was at MD Anderson Hospital in Houston, and after realizing how important the Ronald McDonald House there was to her and her family during their child's illness, I began volunteering at the House in Austin. In the past four years, we have completed and moved into a beautiful, energy-efficient new house adjacent to Dell Children's Hospital. In that time we have served almost 4000 families, and volunteers have spent over 23,000 hours per year supporting the wonderful work that the House staff does for the families of hospitalized children. Volunteers purchase food, cook meals, wash dishes, decorate and clean rooms, do office work, donate money and items on the needs list, garden, collect pull tabs, and support fund-raising events such as the Bandana Ball and Lights of Love 5K. Seeing a family come in from the hospital and being able to relax over a warm lunch or supper is the most gratifying feeling in the world.

seeing how much it means to a stressed-out family to have a place to stay, warm meals, and emotional support when they have a child in the hospital.

not make any changes at all. It is a wonderful organization that provides a home away from home for families of ill children.
