Who We Are

We help families with sick children

The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City (RMHC-KC) is to reduce the burden of childhood illness on sick children and their families. We accomplish this by:

  • Providing comfortable lodging convenient to local health care facilities
  • Creating a caring and uplifting environment
  • Undertaking resource and fund development activities that support our facilities, programs, and services

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City alleviates the worry and expense of finding a close, comfortable and affordable place for a family to stay while their child receives the medical care they need. That can make a world of difference to a child bravely battling an illness or recovering from a serious injury. It costs RMHC-KC $100 a night to house a family.

All families at RMHC-KC are caring for a critically ill child; the families we serve also have diverse backgrounds, experiences and cultures.

RMHC-KC is committed to providing a culturally and psychologically safe environment for everyone associated with our charity: guest families, visitors, volunteers, staff, donors, vendors and partners.

All are welcome here, and we celebrate diversity, equity and inclusion in our spaces.

We are proud we have served Kansas City families fighting childhood illness since 1981. Please enjoy our 40 year anniversary video, which gives a snapshot of our accomplishments, as well as our 35 year anniversary video, which gives a deeper dive into our history!

While McDonald’s is a founding partner and continues to support us financially, we are not fully funded by the McDonald’s corporation.
