Who We Are

Ronald McDonald House Charities Manitoba (RMHC Manitoba) is an organization that keeps families together. We operate two core programs: Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Room in HSC Children's Hospital.

Ronald McDonald House is a "home-away-from-home" for rural Manitoban and out-of-province families with a child requiring treatment at a nearby hospital. The House is a warm, supportive, and welcoming space where families can stay close, be together, and connect with each other in a compassionate and supportive environment.

Ronald McDonald Family Room is a home within the hospital walls for any family with a pediatric patient. Open from 9 am - 9 pm every day of the week, this space offers comfort and care just steps away from your child's bedside. Three sleeping rooms offer overnight accommodations for families of children in critical situations. A napping lounge offers much needed rest for families and siblings while our common area spaces offer a space of respite for moments of rest and reflection.

McDonald's Restaurants of Canada, through Owner/Operators and their partners, are our founding partner and provide annual financial support to help sustain RMHC Manitoba's operations. However, the organization must still rely on the generosity of Manitobans for donations of money, services, and gifts-in-kind for approximately 70% of its operating costs. RMHCMB is primarily supported by a dedicated staff and caring volunteers.
