Our Mission

Ronald McDonald House Charities® of the Capital Region creates and supports programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families. Our three core programs – the Ronald McDonald House®, Ronald McDonald Family Room®, and Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® – help families with sick children stay close to each other and the care their children need, and bring health care resources to the areas where they are needed most.

Keeping Families Close

Our Ronald McDonald House in Albany, NY provides a haven of comfort, love, hope and support – free of charge – for critically ill children and their families. The Ronald McDonald Family Room offers families respite and support within the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center. And our Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, in partnership with St. Peter’s Health Care Services, provides free, comprehensive dental care to under-served and under-insured young students in the Capital Region.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region not only provides access to quality health care; we enable a family-centered approach, ensuring families are fully supported and actively involved in their children’s care. Explore our site and follow us on social media to learn more.
