About the Ronald McDonald House Charities® of New England
Serving New England for Over 30 Years
RMHC New England is comprised of two Ronald McDonald House programs, one in Providence and one located at Boston Harbor, the Ronald McDonald Family Rooms located in Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island, and one located in Mass General Hospital in Boston. Additionally, we manage two care mobiles, one dental unit in Rhode Island and one medical/dental unit in Worcester, MA. The Worcester Care Mobile is the first in RMHC history.
RMH Providence, opened its doors on November 6, 1989 as a 12 bedroom House. The House opened debt free through the great efforts of a concerned group of individuals including parents, community leaders and members of the medical community. After several expansions to keep up with the growing demand on our services, RMH Providence concluded the greatest expansion in 2016. The $5 million “Always Room at the House” campaign allowed us to add program space and offer 28 bedrooms.
RMH Boston Harbor, formerly Home Away Boston, officially opened under the new name January 5, 2017, we currently have 12 apartments; 11 for families and 1 community space where families come together for meals and family programs. Our apartments offer families a home within close proximity to our local hospitals, keeping the family close while their child receives much needed medical care.
Ronald McDonald House Charities is dedicated to improving children’s access to the highest quality health care. For example, Ronald McDonald Houses allow families to access specialized medical treatment by providing a place to live at little to no cost. The Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles provide high quality medical, dental and health education to those with the greatest barriers to accessible health care.
