As you consider making philanthropic donations and supporting our special events, we hope you'll remember that for a family with a hospitalized child, every day is fraught with uncertainty. Services that are provided to our families cannot be interrupted. The reality is that without us, a child may not have the opportunity to receive the treatment they need here in Salt Lake City simply because his or her parents could not afford alternative accommodations.
It costs Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Intermountain Area $74 per night to house a family. Because we know that childhood medical crisis can be financially as well as emotionally devastating, RMHC asks each family to pay a nominal fee of $15 per night. Families stay from just one night to weeks or months at a time.
Our goal is to help families stay together during a time of crisis. We strive to create an environment where a feeling of hope will flourish.
