About Our Organization
Ronald McDonald House® British Columbia is more than just a place for families to stay. It’s a place for families to heal better together.
Every year, hundreds of desperate families come to Vancouver in search of life-saving treatment for their seriously ill children. Finding themselves in a strange city and in a vulnerable state, they long for simple comforts: a bed to sleep in, a pot to cook in, a couch to rest on at the end of a long day. More than anything, they seek a safe and affordable place where their family can stay together under one roof.
Since 1983, Ronald McDonald House British Columbia has opened its doors and arms to overwhelmed families who need to keep the spirit of hope alive while they engage in the fight of their lives.
Within our walls, kids undergoing treatment for cancer and other devastating diseases bask in the glow of family love. Here, parents under siege share stories with others who face similar challenges. And here, people have access to services that help put some joy and normalcy back into their lives.
We provide more than just a place to stay – we provide a community of support.
