RMHC of Idaho operates three programs across Idaho including the Ronald McDonald House in Boise, the Ronald McDonald Family Room in Idaho Falls, and the Happy Wheels Hospitality Carts in Boise and Twin Falls. The Family Room is located inside EIRMC and first opened its doors in September of 2019. In 2022, the Family Room provided comfort, support, meals, showers, snacks, and more to nearly 900 families with 559 overnight stays in one of its four bedrooms.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, RMHC of Idaho relies on support and donations from the communities it serves to make this resource available to the local families and parents of ill or injured children at EIRMC.

The Family Room provides families with a home-like environment where they can get something to eat, take a shower, do laundry, watch television, take a nap, or even stay the night, all without having to leave the hospital. Any family with an ill or injured child at EIRMC can use the Family Room, whether they live in Idaho Falls or have traveled from the larger geographic region served by EIRMC.

Having a child in the hospital is a substantial financial burden for families. There is no cost for families to use RMHC of Idaho’s services and generous donations from the community make this possible. 100% of the funds raised stay local to support RMHC of Idaho programs.

Special thanks to our media partners, Riverbend Communications, I.E. Productions, EastIdahoNews.com, the Post Register and KPVI, that have come together to help raise awareness and essential funds for the campaign.
