Your Support Means the World

Supporting RMHC Michiana makes a real difference in the lives of families as they confront some of the biggest challenges they’ll ever face. The hospitalization of a child can be exhausting, even unbearable at times – especially if treatment extends into days, weeks or even months.

At RMHC Michiana, we understand the need for parents and families to be near their child. We also understand the necessity for a break – time away from the stresses of having a child in need of urgent care. Whether it’s a hot meal, a cup of coffee, a refreshing shower, or even a private overnight room, our House provides security and peace of mind in a storm of adversity. It’s a place where families can stay together, rest and recharge while only minutes from their child – all at no cost to any family. That’s our mission. And it’s why your support means the world to Michiana families in their greatest time of need.

Planned Giving

Planned Giving

When something is valuable, you want to handle it with care, to preserve it so that it lasts.
