WHAT WE DO
Helping kids be kids and families stay close during times of medical crisis
The Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth (RMHFW) provides a supportive, home-like community that eases burdens for seriously ill children and their families. Our vision is to reach all families in need of our services. Through our 55,000 square foot Ronald McDonald House, the Ronald McDonald Family Room located inside Cook Children’s Medical Center, and the Day Program, we strive to provide a sense of normalcy during an otherwise stressful time.
Helping a sick child fight illness takes a big enough emotional toll on a family. Adding a financial strain can make it all almost too much to bear. RMHFW can help address those problems, whether they involve housing that’s near a hospitalized child, feeding a family that has been bedside all day, cutting the hair of mom who hasn’t been home in days or weeks, letting big brother or little sister visit our toy closet on birthdays, or even just washing clothes without having to worry with finding a laundromat.
