RMHC Southwestern Ontario® provides housing for families of ill or injured children in a communal living setting. It is critical to maintaining a safe and sanitary environment in order to protect the health of Families, Employees, Volunteers, Visitors or Others to help flatten the community spread of COVID-19 in Southwestern Ontario and beyond. Ronald McDonald House Charities Global has been supporting and advising Chapters worldwide on how to respond to the evolving situation, and they have implemented a number of temporary changes to the House operations in order to continue to serve our families in the safest possible environment.
On March 23rd, RMHC Global, after careful consultation with health experts, asked all Chapters around the world to suspend accepting new families into our facilities so we could help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 and keep families already in-House, safe. Over the last 8 weeks we have been working closely with RMHC Global, Children’s Hospital and the London Middlesex Health Unit to develop a safe plan to bring new families back into RMHC-SWO programs. We are excited to announce that on Friday, May 15th our RMH London facility began the process of welcoming families back into the House.
We are currently working with RMHC Global and Windsor Regional Hospital to begin our repopulation strategy at RMH Windsor. For RM Family Room London, we await the revision of hospital policies regarding volunteers as our family room is completely operated by our dedicated and passionate volunteer team.
Thank you for caring for families at RMHC-SWO home during these ever-changing times. We have the resources & materials to give them a "home-away-from-home" but need your help to make it truly feel like home.
