40th Anniversary

Collage of families served by RMHC CNI over last 40 years

 

 We Raise the Roof to celebrate 40 years of offering hope, healing and keeping families close. But raising the roof is more than celebrating. It symbolizes how we push beyond the roof and work together with our Chicago and Northwest Indiana communities. Because the higher the roof, the more room to provide needed and necessary programs and services for our children and families.

 

We are proud to have supported families in our community for 40 years through our Ronald McDonald Houses, Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, Ronald McDonald Care Mobile and Scholarship Program. And with your support we plan to keep raising the roof to welcome families for generations to come.
