About Ronald McDonald House Charities Victoria & Tasmania

For over 35 years, RMHC VIC & TAS has provided accommodation and essential support services to seriously ill children and their families.

Since opening its first Ronald McDonald House in Victoria in 1986, RMHC VIC & TAS has expanded to Melbourne, regional Victoria and Hobart. Yet, its mission remains the same: to support the ever-changing needs of seriously ill children and their families while striving to achieve the best
outcomes for families by reducing the impact of their child’s illness.

From Ronald McDonald Houses and Family Rooms to the Ronald McDonald Learning Program and Retreat Program, RMHC VIC & TAS gives families in need welcome respite and care when their lives are turned upside down by their child’s illness.
