RMHC-UM families

Supporting families and keeping them together and strong during a child’s health care crisis is what Ronald McDonald House Charities, Upper Midwest is all about. Whether you’re a new supporter or you’ve been with us since the beginning, it’s an exciting time to get to know us even better.

We’ve officially transitioned from “The Ronald McDonald House of the Twin Cities” and filled out our roster of relevant, impactful, family-centered programming to best meet the needs of families in the Twin Cities medical community.

We provide support and services through three core programs:

Each program serves a specific aspect of our mission which creates, finds and supports programs that provide a caring community for families with seriously ill children while increasing children’s access to health care services. Through these core programs we support thousands of families per year, offering stability, resources and community when it’s needed the most.

Beyond providing a simple place to rest, we create a community of support and encouragement to strengthen families during their time of crisis.

Our greatest reward comes in helping families find a common bond with others facing similar circumstances when they are most needed – and in helping make it possible for children to gain access to needed health care services.
