The New Ronald McDonald House BC

street view

Somewhere in British Columbia, right now, a family is struggling to come to terms with the news that their child has a life-threatening illness.

They need to leave for BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. Immediately. They have no place to stay in Vancouver, and can’t afford a hotel. Worse still, they know their child will need intensive treatment, possibly for a year. Or more. This is the heartbreaking reality that thousands of families with seriously ill children have to face every year.

The only hope for some? Ronald McDonald House®, British Columbia—a home-away-from-home for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.

The current Ronald McDonald House® BC in Vancouver can accommodate just 13 families at a time. Unfortunately, we have to turn away dozens of families each month.
