Mission: The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of the Coastal Empire is to create, find and support programs that directly enhance the health and well-being of children and families. Our cornerstone program is the Ronald McDonald House, a "Home away from home" for more than 300 families each year whose children are receiving medical treatment in area hospitals. Other core programs include the Ronald McDonald Family Room and the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile.
Programs: Established in 1987, Savannah's Ronald McDonald House serves as a "Home away from home" each year for 250 families of critically injured and seriously ill children receiving treatment at area hospitals. RMHC of the Coastal Empire is an independent, 501(c)3 registered non-profit that operates solely on donations. The cornerstone programs include the 10-bedroom Ronald McDonald House, the Ronald McDonald Family Room located inside St. Joseph's/Candler Hospital and the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, a mobile dental clinic providing free dental cleanings and examinations to underserved, school-age children in Beaufort County (SC).
RMHC of the Coastal Empire is a gem in its community. Each and every day local families with critically ill children are able to stay close to their child to help them heal thanks to this "home away from home."
Professional with expertise in this field
Working for Memorial University Medical Center I am able to see and admire on a daily basis the wonderful work RMHC does for families here in the Coastal Empire. The dedication of the staff and the services offered help to ease the strain of having a child in the hospital.
