Our Response to COVID 19:

As we continue to navigate COVID-19 as a community, we continue to prioritize the health and safety of children, families, volunteers and staff at RMHC Ottawa.

Please note that the following changes remain in place:

  • Visits by all groups and/or individuals (donors, community visitors, meals program volunteers) have been suspended until further notice.
  • Our Ronald McDonald Family Rooms located on the 3rd and 5th floor of CHEO are closed until further notice.

We continue to accept new families in need of our services throughout the pandemic. Please call 613-737-5523 for room inquiries.

With the cancellation of fundraising events and suspension of our Meals That Heal program, our families need your help now, more than ever. Please consider clicking here to make a donation in support of our families today.
