The Ronald McDonald House of Providence is truly a home away from home for families going through serious medical situations. The staff and daily volunteers of the House are amazing & they take the time to get to know each family and make them feel welcome. The House is comforting, supportive and provides a must needed respite from the nearby hospitals.

I'm the Men's Soccer Coach at Johnson & Wales University in Providence. Myself, members of my staff and team have been volunteering both at the house and at the Walk Festival for the past 4 years. It's a small way for us to give back to the community but also to such a great organization that has provided for so many families over the years. We look forward to continuing our team's relationship with the Ronald McDonald House.

I have been a volunteer at the Providence Ronald McDonald House for 12 years. I came to the house initially as a thank you for the help the Spokane House gave my brother and sister-in-law when their first son was born. I continue to volunteer as I see the need for the help we provide. Parents are constantly telling me they don't know what they would have done without us. We provide a "home away from home" and help them through a very scary time in their lives.

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

caring for the parents so they can concentrate on caring for their children.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing once stressed out parents take healthy children home.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring & compassionate while being well-organized.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

offer classes to current and former families in parenting, stress reduction, GED, etc.

I came to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House of Providence at a time when I was looking for an environment in which I could contribute meaningfully and interact with pleasant, interesting people. Having had contact with the house in NYC, I knew and was in sync with the mission and non-sectarian approach here. After retiring from a career directing a school and counseling and working with young families, the Ronald McDonald House has encouraged me to use my abilities and experiences in a wonderful variety of different ways. My life is considerably richer for being able to help families from every segment of our society at a vulnerable period in their lives.

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

the faces of parents going home. The gratitude they share is unequivocal.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the clear sense of purpose of the organization and the appreciation and value the staff shows to volunteers every day.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

positive, friendly and (unusually) professional for a mostly volunteer organization.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

lose its uniqueness.
