The Big Build: RMHC Alberta’s Facility Expansion

RMHC Alberta is growing.

In 2022, Ronald McDonald House Charities® Alberta served over 1,200 families from 296 communities. Despite these successes, RMHC Alberta is currently only able to meet 14% of the total need for our services. Unfortunately, about 9 out of 10 eligible families must currently be turned away simply due to lack of space.

In spring 2023, RMHC Alberta will begin the expansion process to add 60 family suites to each of our Calgary and Edmonton Houses. These additional 120 suites represent thousands of families that will gain access to RMHC Alberta’s comprehensive support networks.

Our facility expansion is a significant step toward more equitable healthcare access for families across the province that need to travel for pediatric hospital care.

Our expansion plans are significant and will require $80 million in government and community supports. Your donation will directly contribute to RMHC Alberta’s growth, enabling us to serve more families with seriously sick and injured children than ever before.
