Ronald McDonald House BC/Yukon provides accommodation for families from across British Columbia and the Yukon travel who are travelling to Vancouver in search of life-saving treatment for their critically ill children. Far from their homes, every year up to 2000 families desperately
need accommodation and a place to stay together under one roof. Ronald McDonald House® BC and Yukon offers a home away from home, a community of support, and a restful space for families to heal better together. RMH BC & Yukon operates a modern and welcoming 73 room facility steps from BC Children’s Hospital and a Family Room at Surrey Memorial Hospital. They do this with support from hundreds of volunteers, dedicated donors, and committed staff, we create a community of support for parents, siblings and patients so they can heal better, together.
“We aspire to offer engaging and inspiring play spaces for children of all ages, as part of our core mission to support every family that stays at Ronald McDonald House,” says Richard Pass, CEO.
This year Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon (RMH BC) is thrilled to welcome children and families into several newly redesigned spaces within its House located in Vancouver, B.C. The recent improvements include renovations to the playroom and teen lounge as well as a vibrant mural installation in the outdoor sport court, all of which was made possible through contributions by members of the B.C. building and design community.
This year, RMH BC celebrates eight years in its 73-bedroom House on the campus of BC Children’s Hospital (and over 39 years of operation in Vancouver, BC). As part of the original House design, RMH BC’s playroom, teen lounge and outdoor sport court were created to provide welcoming,
uplifting spaces for children and teens receiving life-saving treatment. Supporting RMH BC in continuing this mission, celebrated members of the local building and design community – Alair Homes, Jamie Banfield Design, Cathy Radcliffe Design, Margot Jagger of Wilson Road and Elyse
Dodge – came together to breathe new life into these essential spaces.
