Ronald McDonald House of Bangor, Maine

Located at 654 State Street, the Ronald McDonald House of Bangor is a welcoming, short-term accommodation for families whose children are receiving treatment at nearby medical facilities. Each year, this fourteen bedroom House is a home away from home for approximately 300 families who must travel far from home for their seriously ill or injured children.

We provide the special kind of comfort, care, and support families need to help get through such uncertain times. Family ties are strengthened and emotional support is offered among families sharing the trauma of serious illnesses.

The Ronald McDonald House of Bangor also offers a suite for children with suppressed immune systems. Many times children need to be near the hospital before, and certainly after, a bone marrow transplant. Being able to stay at the Ronald McDonald House in an efficiency unit cuts down on the number of days a child may have to be in the hospital. It also gives the family the ability to stay together yet be away from the general flow of the House.

Since opening its doors in May 1995, the Ronald McDonald House of Portland, Maine has provided a place to call home for over 500 families annually while their seriously-ill child receives medical treatment at nearby medical facilities. This support will allow us to continue raising the essential funds to keep our doors for up to 21 families each night - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year - and provide them with a safe and affordable environment for a restful night's sleep, a home-cooked meal to regain their energy after a long day at the hospital, and a support system of other families going through similar challenges.

RMH strives for excellence in its daily operation as a home away from home for families whose pediatric children are receiving medical treatment or are hospitalized in the Portland area. It is committed to the comfort and safety of its guests for the duration of their stay and is sensitive to the special and unique needs of families dealing with pediatric health issues.

The Family Room is located on the 6th Floor Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at the Maine Medical Center.

Open 24-hours a day all year long, it is a special place for families to relax in a comfortable home like environment, prepare light snacks, and access the internet just steps away from their loved ones.

Children regain their health and recover faster when families are able to stick together. Because of your generosity, mothers and fathers can get a much-needed break, just steps away from their loved-ones, giving them the energy to re-focus their energy on getting their sick child healthy again.
