Health and Safety Notice

In recent weeks, Ronald McDonald House Charities of CT and Western MA has worked closely with state and local officials, community partners and area hospitals to navigate the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. Our top priority during this time has remained focused on the health and well-being of our guest families, staff and the communities in which we serve, as we navigate the rapidly changing global environment.

To ensure RMHC CTMA families continue to receive lodging and resources that ensure their safety and ability to socially distance, we are securing alternate housing opportunities locally and continuing to provide food, toiletries and daily necessities at no cost to them.

It is with great pride that we continue to fulfill our mission of helping families with critically ill children at the hospital. While this method of support is an adaptation of our normal model, our compassion and care for our families has not wavered.

We believe this adjustment to our programming is the most responsible way to help protect our guest families. We are closely monitoring this situation and will continue to keep you updated as we take steps in the best interest of our guest families, staff, volunteers and the communities we serve.

Thank you for your support during this critical time. Our families still need us and we need you.
