I have been involved with RMHC in Austin, Texas for over 20 years. The staff and volunteers in this wonderfull charity are top notch. Countless families from our area and beyond are provided a much needed service in their times of need. Being able to have a great enviroment to stay in when their children are facing often long and taxing treatments for devestating health issues helps give them some comfort during this time. The community of volunteers is wonderfull, and extremely helpfull.
The staff does everything they can to help as many as they can. I am both a supporter and Board Member of this wonderfull Charity.
