Let the RMHC Ottawa Expansion begin!

We began supporting families with sick children almost 40 years ago in 1984, the House was built with 14 bedrooms, a humble kitchen and 2 family rooms… and now it’s finally time for us to expand!

OUR NEW HOUSE construction is now underway! We broke ground August 10, as we add 22 more bedrooms, quiet spaces, kitchen areas and places to gather – all to reflect the diverse needs of growing communities.

Thanks to your donations, we’re able to keep sick children close to their families and the medical care they need to get better. Learn how you can contribute.


The dedication of our volunteers turns our House into something special. Discover how you can help by giving something we all cherish — your time.


There are several ways to fundraise to support RMHC Ottawa families. See how to get involved in one of our upcoming events, or create your own!

Announcing… “Home for Dinner”!

Our family meal program has a new name! “Meals That Heal” has now become “Home for Dinner”. It’s the same great program with a new name to reflect the warm feeling we all have when we get home and dinner is hot, ready, and waiting for us. Check out the program here to see if your crew could volunteer!
