Keeping Families Close
Helping families heal
Many families travel far from home and spend several weeks or months to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children – a long time to be away or to divide a family. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having a parent close by for love and support. Ronald McDonald House Charities of New Mexico provides that “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost. Our Ronald McDonald Family Rooms offer a place to rest and regroup right at the hospital, just moments away from their sick child. We believe that when a child is hospitalized the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed.
