Our organization is expanding our partnership with the Alaskan Native Medical Center (ANMC) to open the first Ronald McDonald House in Alaska!
The Ronald McDonald House at ANMC will be located in Anchorage, as a floor within the new six-story ANMC housing building. It will provide a home-away-from-home for expectant mothers with high-risk pregnancies as well as families of pediatric patients at ANMC. Amenities will include:
- 34 rooms, each with their own bathroom, full-size bed, and sleeper chair
- Common areas, including a dedicated kitchen and library
- Access to a workout area and cafeteria
- Volunteer-run activities including programs such as beading, craft circles, quilting, healthy cooking classes, and exercise classes.
RMHC & ANMC Partnership
RMHC & ANMC have been partners since 2008, when the Ronald McDonald House began a van program to help serve families from out of town navigate Anchorage during their child’s medical treatment. In 2014, more than 900 Alaskans used the service. We’re excited to be working together to make the first Ronald McDonald House in Alaska a comfortable place with a strong community of hope and healing.
How can I help support the new House at ANMC?
You can make a donation using the form below. Your contributions will help us furnish the House with everything new mothers need to be comfortable and cozy, from household and kitchen supplies to baby blankets.
You can also contribute towards the new housing project via ANMC on their website.
For those residing in Alaska, our partners at ANMC are working hard to create a list of items that the new House will need. Keep an eye on this page for a list soon! Please note that, in an effort to avoid high shipping costs, we cannot accept in-kind donations for our House at ANMC at our Seattle House.
