Red Treehouse

Ronald McDonald Family Resource Link

Supporting the well-being of families and children with challenges, disabilities, and health care needs.

RedTreehouse.org homepageMany families face common challenges when they return home. These include learning about and accessing available services and supports, as well as connecting with families in situations similar to their own. That’s why we created RedTreehouse.org. The site connects a diverse and passionate community of families, young adults, professionals and organizations to:

  • share resources that support children and empower caregivers, families and young adults, prenatal to age 25;
  • link users to organizations and events matching their needs, interests, and location;
  • encourage community connections and development of support networks to promote health and well-being;
  • serve as a resource and reference tool for timely, reliable, easy-to-access information; and
  • inspire hope, confidence, and self-determination.

New Geographic Service Areas

RedTreehouse.org now serves families in Pennsylvania and West Virginia in addition to Ohio, thanks to a 2019 RMHC Remarkable Impact Grant funded by AbbVie. RMHC Northeast Ohio has joined forces with RMHC of Pittsburgh and Morgantown to expand the site’s geographic coverage.
