About Us

Families at the Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham enjoy a cozy bedroom plus cooking, laundry, internet and recreational facilities, dinners provided by volunteers, the support of other families and a caring staff. At the same time, families visiting our Family Room at DCH Regional Medical Center in Tuscaloosa have a place to rest and re-group while being just steps away from their child’s bedside.

VOLUNTEER OVERLOAD! The past couple weeks have been so busy here at #RMHCA. We are so thankful for all of the volunteer groups that have come in as we finish out summer. The families have loved the meals, craft nights, desserts, and fun things you have done for them during their stay. #LoveOurVolunteers (Pictured are Mt Hebron Youth & Young Adults, GFWC Juniorettes, Inroads, Spain Park High School Dazzlers, The Whole Scoop Ice Cream, AKA of UAB, AHA Sweethearts and more!) Remember we upload all photos to our flickr account (we do get behind sometimes, but if we took your picture and you haven't seen it -- check flickr https://www.flickr.com/photos/123930932@N02)

Why is this family smiling? Because they can all stay close together at #RMHCA while one of their new family members is being taken care of across the street at Children's of Alabama. With newborn twins, there is enough to worry about, they shouldn't have to worry about traveling to see family. #LoveOurFamilies
