The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities in Omaha (RMHC) is to create and operate programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children.
We strive to do so by providing opportunities that strengthen children and families during their most difficult and challenging times. The specific purpose of the Ronald McDonald House Charities is to support access to care, reduce financial burden, provide psychosocial support keeping families together, enhance clinical experiences and outcomes and help families resume normalcy.
With over 14,600 lodging nights annually, normalcy is established by providing warm beds, hot showers, meals, laundry facilities, family friendly kitchens, playrooms, and a playground — all the basic essentials of home.
Additionally, the Ronald McDonald House environment includes a built-in support system where families are able to connect with each other, forming an interdependent network of resources and collaboration. The cost to provide our services is approximately $120 per night, per family, and no family is ever turned away due to inability to pay the $20 suggested donation.
