RMHC South Australia
Giving seriously ill children the best gift of all – their families.
RMHC South Australia history
Welcome to Ronald McDonald House Charities South Australia. We are an independent, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing vital programs for families with seriously ill children.
About Our Chapter
Ronald McDonald Charities first arrived in South Australia in 1991, following a major refurbishment of the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide. To assist families needing accommodation close to where their child was being treatment in hospital and in 2000 we established Adelaide’s very first Ronald McDonald House. Since then, we have expanded our accommodation facilities to give over 200 families a warm, safe and secure place to stay every year.
Through our accommodation and support services, we strive to keep families together when life gets turned upside down due to a child’s illness.
Our Ronald McDonald House is run by a tirelessly hard working team of staff and volunteers, aided by the generous support of our donors, sponsors and corporate partners.
We are an independent, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing vital programs for families with seriously ill children.

The original House has accommodated over 4,000 families which equates to more than 130,000 bed nights. Understandably, the bedrooms are in need of renovation.
The ‘Room Rescue’ Program provides organisations or community groups with the opportunity to partner with us to refurbish and maintain these bedrooms. It is the House’s aim to improve the level of comfort that we provide to the families.

Meals from the Heart
It is hard for families to spend each day in a hospital environment and at the end of a long emotional day; they often do not have the energy to prepare a nourishing, home-cooked meal. Meals from the Heart gives families the chance to meet some bright, happy people who talk about ordinary, everyday things like, the football, weather and current affairs.
