More Room for Love

Mindful of the pressing need for our services, RMHC launched an expansion campaign in 2012 in conjunction with our 30th anniversary celebration to acquire and renovate a house adjacent to our current facility. 

In 2015, the $2 million project was complete, putting an end to waiting lists and the need to turn families away.

Ronald McDonald House of Albany, second home exteriorWith the additional space afforded by the expansion, 300 additional families will save $950,000 in lodging, food, travel and medical expenses each year and be able to spend 12,000 more hours bedside with their child to aid in their care and hasten their recovery. 

Several naming rights still exist as we work to pay off the approximately $400,000 in debt associated with this vital project. 

If you would like to learn more about naming rights and how you can help us retire our debt, please contact:
