Through your support, RMHCNN continued to expand and grow in 2023, with a record number of families served through all four of our programs:

  • Ronald McDonald House Program: Guest families, who live 30 miles outside of Reno/Sparks, come home to a delicious meal and connect to other families in similar situations before resting. Families often say their proximity to the hospital gives them time to shadow doctors and nurses and learn more about their child’s continued healthcare.
  • Care Mobile Program: With help from our medical partner, Community Health Alliance, the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile delivers oral health screenings, nutrition education, immunizations and referral/follow-up appointments to children.
  • Family Room Program: For families with a child in Renown Children’s Hospital, the Ronald McDonald Family Room provides a safe haven within the hospital to briefly step away from their child’s room. Parents can use the room to enjoy coffee near the fireplace, grab a snack, or take a nap in the sleep room.
  • Travel For Treatment Program: The Travel-for-Treatment program provides financial travel assistance to parents when a child’s medical treatment is not available in their local area. Our goal is to ensure the cost of travel does not affect a child’s ability to get the care they need.

All in all, the need for the services RMHCNN provides to the families of Northern Nevada and beyond has increased exponentially and we’ve been there to serve them. Click the image to read more about where we’ve been and where we’re going, with a spotlight on one special Valentine in-between.
