The Ronald McDonald House of Providence is the only facility of its kind in the area and for a quarter century it has provided an invaluable service to the medical community and thousands of families. As Rhode Island’s world-class healthcare centers continue to expand, there is escalating demand for the compassionate, therapeutic care provided by Ronald McDonald House of Providence.
In 2015, we provided lodging for nearly 300 families, with an average length of stay of 22 days. These families came from Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and as far away as California and internationally. Our House regularly exceeds its capacity and, unfortunately, there are too many times when the current complement of 18 rooms does not permit us to provide housing for all the families that need our services. In 2015, we turned away 141 families due to lack of available rooms. We must find a way to avoid saying “no” to a family during a time of crisis and uncertainty. There must always be “Room at the House”.
RMH Providence is dedicated to help all families during their time of need, and therefore we’ve embarked on the “Always Room at the House” Campaign to build 10 additional bedrooms. We invite you to support the Mission of RMH Providence – together we will keep more families together during a medical crisis.
