About Ronald McDonald House Charities Victoria & Tasmania

For over 35 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities Victoria & Tasmania (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 and the mission will always remain a constant: 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, the Charity offers families the best possible care and support when their lives are turned upside down by their child’s illness.
