Helping Kids Heal
For 30 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Augusta has been creating, finding and supporting programs that directly improve the health and well being of children. We do this through our core programs, the Ronald McDonald House of Augusta and our Scholarship Program.
The Ronald McDonald House of Augusta is a home away from home for families whose children are being treated at Augusta health care facilities. We serve Georgia Health Sciences Children's Medical Center, Joseph M. Still Burn Center and University Hospital. Families come in search of a hope, a treatment, a cure, and sometimes a miracle. At the Ronald McDonald House, families in medical crisis are able to come together and share their experiences, fears and ultimately, their love and hope with each other. We have welcomed over 16,000 families into our House since we first opened our doors in 1984.
Who We Are
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Augusta (RMHCA) is a locally funded and operated non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of children and their families by creating and supporting programs that directly improve the health and well being of children.
We tailor our programs to address the most urgent needs of our community to keep our kids healthy and happy. These needs include how families can stay near and support a hospitalized child and how to afford staying together in another city while a child is undergoing treatment or care and how to send their child to college. We not only help families address these problems, we provide solutions through the Ronald McDonald House of Augusta and our RMHCA Scholarship Program.
