Ronald McDonald House CharitiesÂŽ Eastern Wisconsin

2015 Annual Report

Ronald McDonald House CharitiesÂŽ of Eastern Wisconsin, Inc. keeps families together while their children are receiving medical treatment at local hospitals.

From the Leadership

Dear Friends of the Ronald McDonald House Eastern Wisconsin: I am so honored to begin serving a 2-year term as the Board Chairman. Following in the footsteps of Maureen Manning will be an exciting and meaningful time for all Board members. Maureen’s leadership helped us accomplish so much over the past couple of years. Thanks to the vision and hard work of Maureen and many others, including Ann Petrie and her team, the House is financially strong and more vibrant and relevant to our community than it has ever been. During the past few years we have seen many changes at our House. After years of turning families away due to capacity constraints, we were able to complete a successful capital campaign and expand our House from 38 to 70 rooms. This means that in 2015 we were able to provide 1,855 family stays during the year and we did not have turn any family in need away. We are proud to provide families with a home environment that offers comfortable rooms, meals served lovingly by our volunteers, and programs that support families with a seriously ill or injured child. The Ronald McDonald House is proud to play a part in making a difference, one family at a time. As we look ahead to the next couple of years, we will continue to keep families as our primary focus – providing the highest level of service, care and compassion. We can do this because we have generous donors like you. We are grateful for your partnership and ask that you continue to support our Ronald McDonald House and the important work we do on behalf of our families. The Board of Directors, staff and volunteers will continue to serve as guardians of “the House that love built.” Thank you for your trust and support as we continue to passionately serve this important mission of keeping families close.

Family Demographics


Where did our families come from?

Racine Walworth


Katelyn’s Story

This is a story about a girl who has beaten the odds many times. Katelyn was born with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD), the same disease that her older brother died from when he was just 4 hours old. When Katelyn was born her lungs were developed, but her kidneys were so large they prevented her lungs from working. By the time she was two weeks old, she had both kidneys removed and was on manual dialysis. At thirteen months old, Katelyn received a kidney from her aunt and recovered quickly, Soon the family’s journey brought them to Milwaukee and the Ronald McDonald House. Children with ARPKD often have liver related issues and need a new liver; Katelyn was one of those children. After two years of waiting, on July 1, 2015, Katelyn received a new liver. Katelyn’s mom Hope shared, “The Ronald McDonald House was a life saver for our family. Katelyn thrived in the House and could focus on being a child instead of worrying about her recovery!” We are happy to share that Katelyn continues to recover and her body is accepting her new liver. She has a big smile for everyone she meets and is always ready to tell you a good joke.

House Programs

Family Guest Rooms We have 70 guest rooms available that provide families with comfortable accommodations and keep them together near area hospitals for as long as they need. It costs almost $90 per night for a family to stay at Ronald McDonald House Charities Eastern Wisconsin (RMHC), yet we suggest our families make a donation of just $20 per night. No family is ever turned away for their inability to pay. In 2015, only 39% of our families were able to make the $20 suggested donation. Program funded by individuals, corporations, foundations, fundraising efforts, and McDonald’s donation boxes. Family Meal Program Families are invited to participate in daily family meals, Lunch-2-Go and other healthy food programs. In 2015, 284 different teams of community volunteers provided 523 complimentary dinners, brunches, snacks and Lunches-2-Go. This program provides RMHC families healthy meal choices and, most importantly, reduces their financial burdens. Program funded in part by a grant from Northwestern Mutual Foundation and other generous partners. Pet Therapy Program “We missed our dogs very much, so it was great to spend time with the therapy dogs and handlers.” Pet Therapy promotes social interaction and emotional support through interaction with specially trained dogs, a bunny and their handlers. In 2015, we hosted 134 hours of pet therapy visits as well as 170 hours from our certified therapy House Dog, McNugget. Therapy certification for McNugget was funded through a grant from The Jeanie Marie Fund. Expressive Therapy Programs Art and music therapists provide group sessions at the House several times each week that address the emotional well-being and physical health of our guests. In 2015, 1,492 children and parents participated in 229 therapeutic sessions. These programs are funded by a grant through Kohl’s Cares®. RMHC Scholarship Program The RMHC Global Scholarship Program is designed to provide financial assistance to eligible graduating high school seniors who face limited access to educational and career opportunities. In 2015, 30 students were awarded scholarships based on academic achievement, financial need and community involvement. Program funded by McDonald’s Restaurants of Southeastern Wisconsin and a matching grant from RMHC Global.
