iBossWell Announces Engagement with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City
April 07, 2022
iBossWell (IBW) is proud to announce its engagement with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City (RMHC-KC), whose mission is to reduce the burden of childhood illness on children and their families. IBW is supporting RMHC-KC in its long-range organizational and needs assessment.
The first Ronald McDonald House opened in Philadelphia as a “home away from home” for families whose children were fighting cancer. Ronald McDonald House Charities programs can be found in 90% of the best children’s hospitals around the world:
379 Ronald McDonald Houses – in 45 countries
266 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms – in 28 countries
43 Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles – in 10 countries
For more than 40 years, the RMHC-KC has been providing home cooked meals, a comfortable place to rest and refresh, and a calming place to escape the stresses of the hospital – all free of charge.
RMHC-KC is the only organization in KC providing temporary lodging solely for families with sick children, and in a typical year serves approximately 8,000 families. RMHC-KC has three Houses located in the UMKC Health Sciences District (at 25th and Cherry in Kansas City, Missouri), and two Family Rooms – inside Children’s Mercy Hospital and Overland Park Regional Medical Center.
Thank you, RMHC-KC for taking care of the families so they can focus on the most important thing: their child's health!
