General Information

Agency Name:
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas
Description:
Brazos Valley Families are supported through four programs: the Ronald McDonald House (located in Austin), Ronald McDonald Family Rooms (CHI St Joseph in Bryan and College Station Medical Center), Happy Wheels Carts and Healing Hearts. Each year, RMHC CTX receives thousands of referrals from hospital social workers and medical staff for families from all socio-economic backgrounds seeking accommodations near the hospital where their critically ill or injured children are located. Through the Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, RMHC CTX provides resources so families can stay together during a time of greatest need. Our family-centered care supports the healing process for children, reduces financial burdens for families, provides critical psycho-social support, enhances clinical outcomes and helps families resume normal activities more quickly. Our Happy Wheels Cart program brings items of comfort directly to families in the 3 major Brazos Valley hospitals. The Healing Hearts program supports families who have tragically lost children by providing financial burial assistance and bereavement counseling.
