Ronald McDonald House

Our Ronald McDonald House program is the cornerstone of Ronald McDonald House Charities® of New Mexico. Our two facilities offer lodging and services for families that have children 21 years old or younger receiving medical treamtment in the Albuquerque area. The House helps reduce family stress while their child is in medical treatment. We keep them together in a home environment, supporting their physical and emotional needs while their children heal. Since 1982, we served more than 37,000 families through our House program.

Katie’s Kart

In October 2017, we launched a new program called Katie’s Kart. The concept is a hospitality cart that will be pushed through the Neonatal Units of Lovelace Women’s Hospital. It is fully stocked with granola bars, crackers, coloring books, puzzles, toiletries, and other small comforts. These items will be provided to families and children on the units free of charge. It is the Charity’s hope that Katie’s Kart will be a simple reminder to these families that they have a network of supporters quietly working to bring them relief during a challenging time.
