Ronald McDonald House Charities

Ronald McDonald House Charities® Southwestern Ontario About Us

How We Help

2 out of 3 Canadian families live outside a city with a children's hospital. This means caregivers must often travel far from home for their sick children to receive the medical care they need. The length of their stay is often unknown and responsibilities back home like work, home expenses & sibling care do not stop...

RMHC Southwestern Ontario operates 3 programs: a House in London, A Family Room within L.H.S.C. Children's Hospital, and a House-Within-A-Hospital inside Windsor Regional Hospital. These locations give families a home environment providing emotional and physical comfort at just $10 a night with no family turned away due to inability to pay. 

RMHC Southwestern Ontario saves families $4.7 million annually in out-of-pocket expenses like lodging, food, and other essentials.

Our House programs provide more than a place to stay and a homemade meal at the end of the day. Donations help us offer family-oriented activities and programs to support caregivers, siblings, and patients while on their medical journey. Programs can include:

  • Pet Therapy
  • Family Craft & BINGO Nights
  • Birthday and Holiday Celebrations 
  • Salon & Barber Services
  • Caregiver Support Groups
