and support our mission to keep families close to their critically ill children while they receive medical treatment - because healing happens together.
In 2014, the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Maine supported over 2,224 children and families of Maine, New Hampshire and beyond through its core programs:
Ronald McDonald House® Bangor, Ronald McDonald House® Portland, and the Ronald McDonald Family Room®.
Children heal faster when families are able to stay together. At the Ronald McDonald House, families find a welcoming smile from a friendly volunteer, a home-cooked meal to enjoy after a long day at the hospital, a good night’s sleep in a caring environment and a place where families support each other through a most difficult time. The cost of a family’s one night stay at the House is $75; however, families are asked to contribute only $10 per night towards their stay.
Last year, 7,750 nights were provided to over 700 families who called RMH Bangor and Portland home. Over 71% of those families could not afford the $10 per night fee due to mounting medical bills as their average stay was 11 nights. No family is turned away due to inability to pay, ever.
