Keeping families with sick children close to each other and the care and resources they need.
Albany Ronald McDonald House provides a haven of comfort, love, hope and support – free of charge – for critically ill children and their families. We want to enable family-centered care by keeping children close to their families during a time of hardship. The Family Room and Family Suite offer families respite and support within the Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center, close to their ill child and his/her caregivers. Our Dental Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, in partnership with St. Peter’s Health Care Services, provides free, comprehensive dental care to underserved and underinsured young students. Our community-based Grants Program supports other local charitable organizations and programs that directly improve the lives of children.
