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 that live 25 miles or more away 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.
