Ronald McDonald Family Room® Programs

Our Family Room Programs, located at UNMH Children’s Hospital and at Presbyterian Hospital in downtown Albuquerque, offer respite services to families who wish to stay near their children’s bedsides. The Family Rooms are staffed by volunteers and offer quick snacks, beverages, computers, laundry facilities and resource libraries. The Family Room located at Presbyterian Hospital also offers overnight sleeping rooms.

Katie’s Kart

The hospitality cart is stationed outside of 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 are provided to families with an infant in the Neonatal Units at no cost. It is our 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.
