Mission & Vision Banner3

Thinking globally, acting locally to provide resources for children and their families

Our Mission

Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Maine creates, finds and supports programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children statewide; provides affordable home away from home lodging which increases access to medical care for families of children receiving treatment; and supports a Family Room where families find respite at the hospital.

Our Vision

We believe when you change a child’s life you change a family’s, which can change a community and ultimately the world.

As pioneers of providing family-centered care, RMHC strives to be part of the solution in improving the lives of children and their families, providing programs that strengthen families during difficult times.

Through the strong network of RMHC Chapters around the world collectively, we are able to identify needs and carry out the RMHC mission locally. However, we cannot do it alone. We rely on our strong relationships with the medical community to provide access to health care. We rely on the RMHC Mission Partner, McDonald’s; including the corporation, owner/operators, suppliers and customers, as well as other important corporate partnerships. Additionally, we rely on strategic alliances with organizations that have the knowledge and infrastructure to extend our reach. Most of all, we rely on you – our donors, volunteers, staff and friends.
