Mission: Ronald McDonald House Charities of Austin and Central Texas creates, finds and supports programs that directly improve the health and well being of children and their families.
Direct beneficiaries per year: We served more than 1,740 families in 2012.
Programs: Through the Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Room programs in Austin, we serve over 1400 families a year by providing lodging, meals and support services to families with ill or injured children. Families stay with us for an average of 8 nights. We open our doors to all families from all walks of life. If a family cannot afford to pay the $10 a night fee, we will cover all expenses. We will never turn anyone away regardless of their financial situation. We provide limited burial assistance funds, and bereavement counseling for those who have lost a child.
