Who We Are
A strong mind. A strong body. And a safe, supportive place to grow. These are things that every child needs and deserves.
Helping to provide these things is what we do.
Our cornerstone, Ronald McDonald House® of Buffalo, opened in 1983 with the single focus of providing a “home away from home” for families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at nearby hospitals. Since that time, more than 17,000 families from Western New York and Northwestern Pennsylvania, the country and the world, have benefited from the comfort provided by the our House.
Additionally, RMHC WNY funds a Community Granting Program that supports not-for-profit organizations whose programs directly improve the health and well being of children in our WNY communities. Financial support for these grants comes from the local McDonald’s Owners/Operators of WNY and NWPA, McDonald’s Corporation (RMHC National), and our WNY community.
