Who We Are
When a child becomes seriously ill, the whole family suffers, particularly if the loved one must be hospitalized or receive outpatient treatment far away from home for extended periods of time.
To be together, family members often sleep on uncomfortable cots or chairs, or bear the expense of a hotel room. At a time when they want all their strength available, the simple demands of everyday life can seem overwhelming.
For these families, Ronald McDonald House of Amarillo offers a refuge from the hospital, a place where they can have a comfortable room and bed, kitchen and laundry facilities, and a play area. They can draw hope and strength from late night conversations over a hot cup of coffee or tea, sharing with other residents the experiences that may be difficult for family and friends back home to fully understand.
