Clintar, OwnerWhy I Love RMH
In May 2006, my first son Max was born with several complications. Ronald McDonald House quickly became our home away from home just steps away from Children’s Hospital. RMHC provided not only a roof over our head and hot meals but also the amazing support of volunteers, staff and the fellow guests that knew exactly what we were going through at the time. We spent 10 weeks at Ronald McDonald House and the impact this incredible organization had on my family is something I will never forget. In memory of Max, I will do whatever I can to help carry out the mission of keeping families close at their most trying times.

Lawyer, Strigberger Brown Armstrong LLPWhy I Love RMH
What I love most about the RMH is reflected in one of my first visits to the House. Two sick children were playing together. One said "I'm sick." The other responded "I'm sick too." With that, they went back to playing. That's what RMH is all about. Making kids and families feel comfortable during an incredibly difficult time.

I've seen first-hand how family is at the heart of all things Ronald McDonald House. Our programs, of course, help keep families close in times of crisis, but that spirit of togetherness goes so much further. From our volunteers, partners, supporters, staff, and alumni.
