Overview Summary

Located in Charlestown, MA, the Ronald McDonald House® at Boston Harbor is the premier core program of the Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Eastern New England. Since 1986, RMHC® of Eastern New England has supported the health and wellbeing of children and families throughout Eastern New England. The RMH Boston Harbor is the third Ronald McDonald House® in this area. Unlike a traditional House, RMH Boston Harbor leases and operates private one-bedroom apartments which are used by families whose children are receiving extended medical care at Boston area hospitals. The program currently includes eight family-use apartments plus one community/office space. The organization intends to continue growing the program until the needs of its population have been met. www.rmhbostonharbor.org
