It is amazing the work of the Ronald House of the Coastal Empire! The caring way they manage assisting the families during such a time of need is unbelievable! The staff and volunteers make certain that almost no need is unmet to a family so they can focus on the healing of their child and spend as much time as possible with their child. Of course, when they return to RMHC for a break, the staff and volunteers make sure the family gets support and rest or whatever is needed.
What is special is that no family is turned away if they cannot afford the nominal fee charged for staying at the house however long they need to be there. That is why this grant and our donors make our house strong! The volunteers are constantly providing meals and making sure the house is a home away from home for these families!
Review from Guidestar
My involvement with The Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
From the moment you walk in the house you have an immediate feeling that God is with you. The love and smiles that the dedicated staff and volunteers provide is something that I know every family remembers forever. When I started volunteering in the house, Miss Kennette was the only full time employee and ran the house as if it were her own home.
She extended her arms and heart to ever family that walked through the door. A time went by the house was blessed to have Nikole Layton join as Executive Director and her energy and true dedication for the charity has made the house bigger and better than anyone could have hoped for. Our developmental director Mindy is a brain child and has taken her passion for the house and started fundraisers and events in the house that has gained media exposure to the house like never before. Lastly we have Carol, our volunteer coordinator that has truly been a blessing. Our board is led by Ms. Lisa Dean and she has managed to build a board of strong people in our community that love and believe in everything RMHS stands for. I am proud to be involved with RMHC and proud to know the amazing women that help the families of the LowCountry during unthinkably difficult times.
