RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE
All Ronald McDonald Houses are independently owned and operated non-profit organizations. Ronald McDonald House® Northern Alberta (RMHNA) is the only facility in Edmonton and the surrounding area that provides temporary and affordable accommodation for families whose children are being treated in one of Edmonton’s medical facilities.
The 42,000 square foot RMHNA features 32 private family suites and provides a home-away-from-home for families coming to Edmonton to seek treatment for their sick child.
In 2012, 855 families and 2,505 people stayed at RMHNA. The House features three kitchens, heated underground parking, a school for guests in Grades 1-12 and several spaces for families to gather. Their staff and hundreds of volunteers provide some meals, activities and support to the families staying at the House.
RMHNA provides a place of comfort and compassion for out-of-town families who live at least 45 kilometres away from Edmonton, but their families come from all over Alberta, neighbouring provinces and as far away as Jamaica.
