Ronald McDonald House Charities® Southwest Florida creates, finds and supports programs that directly improve the health and well being of children and families in Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry, and Lee counties. We provide impact through three core programs: The Ronald McDonald House® providing lodging, meals, and other services; the Ronald McDonald Family Room® at Golisano Children's Hospital providing food, laundry facilities, and a relaxation area; and The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® providing dental care through our partnership with two health care providers to underserved children. Of the 48 RMHC Care Mobile programs worldwide, we proudly have 2 to serve our community. In 2021, we launched a RMHC SWFL Emergency Hardship Fund program; should an unforeseen emergency (for example, a hurricane or illness) cause an unexpected House closure, the Fund will provide short-term support to families under specific conditions.
