Since opening our doors in 2012, Ronald McDonald House Central Alberta has played host to almost 1,500 out-of-town families with children receiving medical treatment in hospital.
In 2017 alone, 367 families stayed at our House, with 130 individual families using our day passes 916 times.
Since opening, 2,419 Day Use Program passes have been used by families with sick children looking for a place to rest, eat a warm meal and recharge for a few hours away from the hospital.
Last year, 916 Day Use passes were used by families.
We know the costs associated with being away from home caring for a sick child can quickly add up. That’s why families pay only $12 of the $184/night it costs to operate each room or can access our Day Use Program completely free of charge.
Thanks to our generous donors and funders who make it all possible.
