Help make our birthday

wish come true!

Our birthday wish is to fill Ronald McDonald House with Helping Hearts and love, so we can keep families together.

For 30 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern NSW has been keeping families with a sick child together when they need it most.

And with you by our side, we’ll be there for families for another 30 years.

Since the doors of our Ronald McDonald House in Newcastle first swung open in April 1991, families with a seriously ill or injured child have found a place to call home during some of their darkest days. Thousands of feet have walked the corridors of the House, back and forth from the hospital to the sanctuary of the House and the comfort of their room – day and night.

Doors and arms have been opened and outstretched, welcoming smiles and words providing calm in the chaos. Cups of tea and cake shared by parents who find themselves in similar situations, relieved to know they aren’t alone.

Unique experiences shared together at Ronald McDonald House.

As the need for families with a seriously ill or injured child grew, and with the huge hearts and love of the community, so too did the support we were able to provide.

The addition of Family Rooms in Newcastle and Gosford, another House in Tamworth – built in just a few days, the Family Retreat in Forster, and the Learning Program over the last 30 years have rounded out the family centred care we are able to provide with the generous support of the community.

Like with any house, room, holiday retreat, or educational program, after 30 years things need to be updated, maintained and improved. 

By purchasing a Helping Heart today, you’ll help us make some much-needed improvements to facilities and continue the services that support the wellbeing of families and sick kids across our region.

When you purchase a Helping Heart, we’ll add your name and place it on display to show all our families and volunteers how big your heart is.

Help make our wish come true and donate today to see your Helping Heart on display.

Thank you for opening your doors and to continue to. Your support has helped so many families. The families that have stayed with you truely know the value of RMH and how you can bring anxious parents/ guardians together to support each other and feel less alone. Your accomodation is one less worry; and one less financial burden for families who have had their lives turned upside down. ❤️
