Keeping children near the care they need with the family they love since 1991

No family should deal with their medical crisis alone.

Ronald McDonald House Charities© of Memphis

RMHC-Memphis welcomes children and families from across the world. Since opening in 1991, our House has hosted 11,200 families from all 50 states and 51 countries. Every day, our House and staff provide support and comfort to families going through the hardest days of their lives.

RMHC-Memphis opened its doors to serve families who live too far away from medical treatment to stay close to the hospital. Backed by the generosity of our community, we continue to receive and support more families as they seek medical treatment for their children.

Our doors are open to every patient of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, regardless of religion, ethnicity, race, gender, national origin, and age.
