Founded in 1978, the mission of Ronald McDonald House (RMH) Houston is to offer a home away from home providing care, compassion and hope to families with seriously ill children being treated in Texas Medical Center (TMC) member institutions. When families cross our threshold they are in the midst of fighting pediatric cancer, critical heart defects, awaiting organ transplants, managing a multitude of birth anomalies, receiving maternal fetal care, or just received approval to participate in an experimental drug therapy. Offering a safe place to stay, with complimentary meals and access to the daily necessities, RMH Houston offers four locations to meet a families’ needs: Holcombe House, and Houses, Family Rooms/Lounges inside Texas Children’s Hospital, Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital, and M.D. Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital. No matter how financially stable a family is, the worries of a child’s health and the related expenses add up exponentially – medical, travel, lodging, food, gas, parking, sibling care/activities – the family can be quickly overwhelmed. RMH Houston strives to relieve these stressors so the family can focus solely on the health of their child and the stability of their family.
