Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin, Inc. keeps families together while their children are receiving medical treatment at local hospitals.
onald McDonald House Charities Eastern Wisconsin celebrated another year of keeping over 2,300 families close in 2016. Our mission is about so much more than the bricks and mortar Ann Petrie, President/CEO and Gary Zimmerman, of our 70 guest-room facility. Facing a Chairman of the Board journey of treatment and recovery after receiving a difficult medical diagnosis is nothing any family dreams will happen to them. RMHC provides a place of hope and promise as our families experience: • The smiles and compassion of over 550 volunteers who answer questions, make-up guest rooms, drive families to the hospital and take children to the Magic Room. • Peering into the loving and patient eyes of McNugget and other therapy dogs and bunnies, who joyfully accept hugs, tugs, and pats from the many children who want to show them love. • Breathing in the wonderful aromas as volunteer groups prepare and serve dinner to our families each evening. • Enjoying the tranquillity of our Secret Garden, while learning the botanical and common names for the plants lovingly planted and cared for by our volunteer Master Gardeners. As we look forward to 2017, the House’s Board of Directors and staff are committed to developing a new strategic plan that ensures we can continue to serve our families and to expand our mission’s reach in the Milwaukee community. A generous estate gift provided funding to help us support the Miles of Smiles mobile dental program, and we launched our Hospitality Cart program at Children’s Hospital in May thanks to Kohl’s Cares. We are excited to support these and other initiatives as we bring the Ronald McDonald House experience to others in our community. We are grateful for the many volunteers and donors who support our mission and allow us to provide the families we serve with a beautiful facility, quality programs and thoughtful touches that make our House a home. Thank you for your support!
Ann Petrie, President/CEO
Gary Zimmerman, Chairman of the Board

Baby Zylah's BROKEN HEART If you ask Zamiyah, Zariha, and Zaliyah what their favorite part of the Ronald McDonald House was, all three will say: getting to see baby Zylah every day. At 20-weeks pregnant, Porchae found out her baby had a congenital heart defect (CHD) and would need three surgeries following birth. Zylah was born in August, and a few days later had her first surgery. However, along with CHD, Zylah had heterotaxy; her organs were not all where they should be. Such a complicated anatomy meant the three-part surgery plan was tossed out, and Zylah was now a top priority heart transplant candidate. For six months, the family waited for a heart for Zylah. “I don’t know what we would have done if the Ronald McDonald House wasn’t here. You have no idea what you’re going into; no idea the up and down emotions. The support- we have amazing friends that we have made here. This is our family for our daughters and for us when we are here.” In February 2017, the Green family had to say goodbye to their sweet girl. With the family’s permission, we share their story and honor the memory of baby Zylah.
HOUSE PROGRAMS Family Guest Rooms
We have 70 guest rooms available that provide families with comfortable accommodations and keep them together near area hospitals as long as their child is being treated. It costs nearly $90 per night for a family to stay at RMHC, yet we suggest our families make a donation of just $20 per night. In 2016, only 37% of our families were able to make that suggested donation. No family is ever turned away for their inability to pay. Program funded by individuals, corporations, foundations, fundraising efforts and McDonaldâ€™s restaurant donation boxes.
Family Meal Program
Families are invited to participate in daily family meals, Lunch-2-Go and other healthy food initiatives. In 2016, 292 different teams of community volunteers provided 565 complimentary meals. These programs provide RMHC families with healthy meal choices and, most importantly, help reduce their financial burden. Program funded in part by a grant from Northwestern Mutual Foundation and other generous donors.
Pet Therapy Program
Pet Therapy promotes social interaction and emotional support through visits with specially trained dogs, bunnies and their handlers. In 2016, we hosted 95 hours of Pet Therapy visits and 150 hours from our House therapy dog, McNugget. Therapy certification for McNugget was funded through a grant from the Jeanie Marie Foundation.
Expressive Therapy Program
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, 1,261 children and parents participated in 198 therapeutic sessions. These expressive therapies 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 2016, 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.
