Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas' goal is to ensure all families with critically ill or injured children have access to temporary lodging and support services while their children are in the hospital or enduring outpatient treatment. Helping a sick child fight their illness takes an emotional toll on a family. Adding a financial strain can make it almost unbearable. Our goal is to help address those concerns by keeping families close to the care their sick children need. Through the Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, RMHC CTX provides resources so families can stay together during this time of greatest need. This family-centered care supports the healing process for children, reduces financial burdens for families, provides critical psycho-social support, enhances clinical outcomes and helps families resume normal activities more quickly.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas provides lodging and support services to families with critically ill or injured children at the Ronald McDonald House, a 30-guest suite house, and six Ronald McDonald Family Rooms located inside Central Texas hospitals. These two programs provide family centered care to ensure families have what they need while their children are hospitalized or in treatment. The Happy Wheels Cart program brings RMHC CTX directly to families in the hospital. The Carts stroll the hallways of five Central Texas hospitals to deliver complimentary items such as snacks, juice, small toys, and toiletries to families spending long hours at their child's bedside. The Healing Hearts program supports families who tragically suffer the loss of the child. Burial assistance is provided to families and bereavement support through the HOPE Support Group offers a six-week session led by a licensed counselor. The HOPE Support Group is complimentary.
