iBossWell Announces Engagement with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City
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!
