Ronald McDonald STAR Center at UH Rainbow Center for Women and Children

About This Campaign

It’s a familiar sight: Caregivers trying to focus on a child’s, or their own, medical treatment while also caring for young children accompanying them. In some cases, this can be a significant barrier to receiving the best care or making the most informed decisions. Ronald McDonald STAR Centers now provide support in two area outpatient clinics so caregivers can attend to what matters most: family health and well-being.

STAR (Support, Teaching, Awareness and Resources) Centers are designed to provide a fun and welcoming learning environment for children while their family members receive focused outpatient care. Children visiting the Centers are given learning activities and mini educational lessons to promote future healthy habits and well-being. Helpful tips, tools and resources are also shared with caregivers to help foster positive family interactions and healthy child development. Families are also given information about using the free Ronald McDonald Family Resource Link, www.redtreehouse.org, which offers a comprehensive collection of organizations, tools, guides and events to help families navigate through challenges.

Caregivers can turn their full attention to the patient, knowing that the whole family is being supported by the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland.

Upon checkout, you will be given the option to cover fees so that 100% of your donation comes directly to RMH. Processing fees are approximately 4.28% + 30 cents. If paying via American Express, an additional 1% is added to that.
