Keeping Families Close

RMHC gives a family with a sick child what they need most — each other.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas provides lodging and support services for families with children in Central Texas Hospitals.

Founded in 1985 on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas has supported 17,000+ families by providing them with 100,000+ room nights at the Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Rooms located in Central Texas.

As partners in enabling family-centered care for three decades, RMHC CTX strives to be part of the solution in improving the lives of children and their families by providing programs that strengthen families during difficult times.
