2020 brought our House many challenges, as it did for most. However, our doors never closed. We continue to remain open for families who need our services.
We rely on the community for support in many different ways, and that need has only increased. We hope you will consider supporting RMHDE with a donation to support our efforts in keeping families together and continuing to provide essential services during this health crisis.
Donations to our #DoMore24 fundraiser will go to support the ongoing operations-related needs of the House- things like electric, heating, cleaning services, maintenance, and administration- everything we need to keep our doors open for our families. We cannot do it without you. Please make a gift today.
About Ronald McDonald House of Delaware
Mission: The Ronald McDonald House of Delaware serves families with seriously ill children by enabling access to medical care and providing a place of comfort, hope and togetherness.
The Ronald McDonald House of Delaware provides a “home-away-from-home” for families of seriously or chronically ill or injured children receiving specialized pediatric medical care at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, DE, or Christiana Hospital in Newark, DE.
Over the past 30 years, the House has served more than 50,000 families. Families who stay at the House are provided meals throughout the day, transportation to and from the hospital and around town to run errands, and several amenities, including an onsite beauty salon, lactation room, library, 25 seat mini theater, toy and recreation rooms, and a teen room.
The ability to be steps away from the hospital has a huge impact on the entire family. Access to the services and amenities at the House helps parents and children rejuvenate from long, stressful days at the hospital and to gain support from other families in similar situations so they can focus on their main priority, their child.
