Ronald McDonald House at Boston Harbor: History
Home Away Boston opened
Home Away Boston and Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Eastern New England decided to consolidate talent and resources to better serve the community
RMH Boston Harbor opened with 9 apartments, serving families with critically ill children.
Later that year, RMH Boston Harbor added 2 apartments allowing 11 families to stay close during their child’s medical treatment.
RMH Boston Harbor added 1 more apartment to keep up with the growing demand for services.
RMH Charities of Eastern New England and RMH Providence merged to become the Ronald McDonald House Charities® New England.
2019 and Beyond
Combining strengths and resources allows RMHC NE, including RMH Providence and RMH Boston Harbor, to better serve the needs of critically ill children and their families today, tomorrow and for many years to come.
Each of the one-bedroom guest units is truly a home-away-from-home. Every unit is equipped with two or more beds and plenty of linens, pillows, and towels for families to use during their stay. There are televisions in the bedroom and living room as well as WiFi, cable and a dvd player. There is also a fully equipped kitchen stocked with basic foods prior to each family’s arrival. A washer/dryer in the unit and a supply of movies, toys, books, and games, allows our families to feel “at home” when dealing with the stress of a sick child.
