RMHC of Connecticut and Western Massachusetts gives families the gift of togetherness. Our Houses serve as safe havens for families with children in need of medical care, keeping families together as they seek essential healthcare services and life-changing medical treatment.
Families shouldn’t be apart when their child is in need of care. For over 30 years, our Ronald McDonald House Programs have been a home-away-from-home for families who must travel far for their child’s healthcare, and our dedicated staff, volunteers, and community have led with compassion to surround families with support, hope, and courage.
Although McDonald's is our leading mission partner, fulfilling our mission is only possible through the generosity of financial contributions and volunteer support from our local communities.
Engage your community and raise funds to help families through bake sales, car washes, peer-to-peer fundraisers, and more.
The smallest gestures can have the biggest impact. Give families a taste of home with a warm meal at breakfast, lunch, or dinnertime.
We operate two Ronald McDonald House programs that provide support and resources to families seeking nearby medical care.
Opened in 1985, the Ronald McDonald House of Connecticut serves families seeking care at Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital, Yale New Haven Health, and other local medical facilities. Our new House, built in 2017, features 18 guestrooms and 2 respite rooms.
The Ronald McDonald House of Springfield has served thousands of families seeking treatment in the Massachusetts area since 1991. With 21 guestrooms and 1 respite room, the House provides accommodations for families receiving care at Shriner’s Hospital for Children, Baystate Hospital, and other local medical facilities.
