About Our Organization

Since 1980, the Ronald McDonald House of Durham has allowed families to focus on the health and well being of their critically ill children by keeping families together who are in need of a community of hope, comfort, and empathy. Our programs provide families with the comforts of home –private bedrooms, inviting community spaces, daily home-cooked meals and stocked kitchen, a play room, computer room and laundry facilities – as well as a network of support through interactions with other families, staff and volunteers. Families with critically ill children face immense emotional, physical and financial challenges; knowing that Ronald McDonald House of Durham will be there to support them in a safe and caring environment helps to alleviate some these challenges.

As the need for our services have increased in recent years, we have found ourselves turning away 700 or more families a year as we do not have the facilities to house all those in need. To keep up with the growing expansion of our area children's hospitals, the Ronald McDonald House of Durham broke ground on a $6.7 million expansion in October 2011. The addition will allow us to increase our capacity from 29 to 55 rooms and suites, thereby growing to serve more families. In order to meet our goal of opening our expanded House in early Fall 2012, our campaign must still raise over $800,000. The TRC Climbathon has joined forces with RMHD to help provide financial assistance for our building and increased operational needs with our new building addition and we are excited to have their support.
