Ronald McDonald House of Springfield was built over 32 years ago, and has since been home to over 12,000 families. After all the years of providing a warm, safe, and comforting environment, the wear and tear on the exterior of the building had caused severe deterioration of the siding, gutters, and windows, to the point of needing full replacement. By addressing these repairs quickly, we safeguarded the guest rooms against possible damage from any additional exterior deterioration, ensuring no families would be turned away.
The Beaulieau Construction Company stepped up to the challenge and worked diligently to preserve the integrity of the House, beautify and reinforce our outer appearance, and were as unintrusive as possible to the families in our care. Throughout the process, RMH families continued to use our services while staying in upgraded rooms as we completed the multi-month endeavor.
The outdoor space in the backyard still requires renovation as the deterioration of the old playground needed removal this past fall. Our plan is to create an inviting space that includes a children's play area, a family activity section, and a pergola to provide shade to families enjoying fresh air and sunshine.
There is still time to become partners with RMHC CTMA in this worthy endeavor. Please consider making a gift to help complete our Rebuild, Restore, Renew Campaign. The contribution that you make today will keep families together and provide hope and healing for children for decades to come.
