2020: A Year of Change
2020 was a year of both anticipated and unanticipated changes. After 18 months of planning, the four RMHC-affiliated organizations serving areas of Northeast Ohio united as Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northeast Ohio, Inc. (RMHC NEO) in July 2020. The newly-formed RMHC Chapter brings together the resources and capabilities of Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland, Ronald McDonald House of Akron, RMHC of Northeastern Ohio and RMHC Mahoning Valley and Western Pennsylvania.
2020 also brought unexpected challenges due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. For the safety of all and reduction of spread, changes to program operations were necessary. We rose to the challenge, reinventing operations to safely continue to provide families with comfort, care and supportive services. The community came together to generously support our evolving needs and increased expenses due to COVID-19’s impact. This resilience and reinvention are chronicled through inspiring stories of serving families during a pandemic: Our House is Their Home part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5.
RMHC NEO continues to move forward, stronger together. We are poised to help more families, more efficiently and in more ways than ever before.
