For over thirty years, Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon (RMH BC) has been providing accommodation for seriously ill children and their families when they must travel to Vancouver for their child's major treatment. Since 1983, we have welcomed families at our 13-bedroom home in Shaughnessy, but the need for our services was much greater. In 2013, we began construction on a new 73-bedroom House, conveniently located on the grounds of BC Children's Hospital.

The Bateman Foundation

The Children's Foundation
2750 East 18th Ave, Vancouver, British Columbia

We help children heal from trauma and set them on the path to success in adulthood. Trauma may occur for many reasons and different children react differently to those experiences. Poverty, witnessing violence or coping with a mental health condition can greatly challenge a child's ability to grow and develop at a typical rate. Left untreated, the likelihood of difficulties into adulthood increases. We identify the sources of trauma and help a child cope and heal so they can look forward to a bright future.
