Ronald McDonald House Charities and Fisher House are both community based homes operated locally in Albany, NY. Both organizations provide comfort and care to patients receiving medical treatment in the Capital District.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the health, development and wellbeing of children and their families. This is accomplished through the Ronald McDonald House, a home away from home for families of seriously ill children, and by creating and supporting programs that directly improve the lives of children and their families. They help families focus on being there for their sick children during this difficult time, rather than being consumed by the stress of paying for a hotel room near the hospital or having to cook a meal every night.  Ronald McDonald House Charities increases the ability for families to interact with their child’s clinical care team and have a say in critical medical care decisions. They aim to provide families with physical and emotional comfort and support during a time of hardship. By creating, finding and supporting programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children.

Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment. These homes are usually located at a major military and VA medical center nationwide, close to a medical center or hospital they serve.  Since inception, the program has saved military and veterans’ families an estimated $360 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.
