|About||Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western New York keeps families with sick/injured children together and near the care and resources they need.|
|Mission||The mission of RMHC of WNY is to create and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families.|
|Description||Families are stronger when they are together, which helps in the healing process. By staying at a Ronald McDonald House, parents also can better communicate with their child’s medical team and keep up with complicated treatment plans when needed. They can also focus on the health of their child, rather than grocery shopping, cleaning, or cooking meals.|
Our cornerstone, the Ronald McDonald House in Buffalo, opened in 1983. The Buffalo Ronald McDonald House provides a home environment of comfort and support, keeping families of seriously ill or injured children receiving treatment at nearby hospitals, together.
Our Family Lounge within the Oishei Children’s Hospital (OCH) opened in November 2017. Our Family Lounge provides a place for all patient families to rest and regroup right in the hospital.
Our Happy Wheels Cart within the OCH will launch in January 2018. Our Happy Wheels Cart will travel through the hallways of the Hospital offering families, patients and caregivers complimentary beverages and a snack while remaining merely steps away from their child’s bed.
