We exist so families can get better together.
In 1983 RMHC-SLA partnered with our local children’s health care providers to keep families together and near the medical care their ill or injured children needs. Through the generosity of our donors and volunteers, we have continued to focus on families’ needs as they face the medical uncertainty and financial stress of caring for their children.
Today, RMHC-SLA serves critically ill children through our Ronald McDonald House on the campus of Children's Hospital New Orleans, our Lafayette Ronald McDonald Family Room at Our Lady of Lourdes Women's & Children's Hospital, and our Happy Wheels Hospitality Carts. Through these programs we help provide housing, meals, transportation, community, and psychosocial support to families with children at local hospitals.
