About Ronald McDonald House Charities of Hawaii
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Hawaii (RMHC-Hawaii) offers support for families with seriously ill children by operating two Ronald McDonald Houses in Manoa Valley and a respite and support center inside Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children. The Ronald McDonald Houses offer safe, comfortable lodging and many other vital services to create some normalcy in the lives of families from the neighbor islands and around the Pacific when they come to Honolulu seeking medical care for their children. Each year, hundreds of families make a Ronald McDonald House their “home away from home.” The hospital-based Ronald McDonald House Family Room provides support for families of inpatient children. Most of those assisted at the Family Room are from Oahu. RMHC-Hawaii programs strengthen and support families during a very difficult time. For a child being treated for a serious illness, having family members nearby to give love and comfort may be as crucial as medical care itself. RMHC-Hawaii relies heavily on community support to keep the Houses running, not only through monetary donations, but also through countless hours of personal time committed by volunteers.
