About Ronald McDonald House Houston
Ronald McDonald House (RMH) Houston provides families with a home away from home: a safe, comfortable, affordable place to live while their child receives treatment for a life-threatening illness inside the Texas Medical Center. While meeting the families’ most vital need for a place to stay, RMH Houston also offers meals, activities, and opportunities to connect with other families facing similar crises.
For more than three decades, Ronald McDonald House Houston has served families with seriously ill children being treated in Texas Medical Center member institutions. Today, that vision has grown to help more than 3,000 families in the Ronald McDonald House Houston Houses in 2016 and thousands more in our family rooms located within the hospitals. The Ronald McDonald House Houston facilities include the Holcombe House, a free-standing 50-bedroom home for longer-term stays; a house inside Texas Children’s Hospital with 20 bedrooms; a house inside Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital with 14 bedrooms; four family rooms inside Texas Children’s Hospital; a family room inside MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital; and a Cookie Corner inside Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus.
