OUR MISSION & IMPACT
Our mission is to care for families of children with complex medical needs by providing comfort, compassion and a sense of community.
We support children and families at five area Ronald McDonald Houses®, three Ronald McDonald Family Rooms® and two Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles®. Each night, we keep 153 families close to the care and resources they need. Allowing families to stay close to their child in the hospital supports the child’s health and well-being while saving our families hotel and food costs.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana (RMHC-CNI) will be the respected leader in enhancing the health, well-being, and education of children in our area.
RMHC-CNI strives to reach out to all families and children in need in a caring, compassionate way, while holding itself strictly accountable for the investments it makes in its mission and programs.
Every year, thousands of children and their families travel to receive care at one of Chicago’s world-renowned hospitals. We have been at their side since 1977, providing a caring and compassionate environment where families can rest and find support while remaining close to their hospitalized child.
In 2016, we welcomed 9,523 families for a total of 43,550 nights at our five houses.
