Our History



  • On March 1, 1984, the first Ronald McDonald House of El Paso opened its doors at 1017 Montana. The house had 6 bedrooms.
  • On June 14, 2002, the charity expands its vision and reach by building a larger House with 10 bedrooms located at 300 E. California.
  • In the fall of 2007, RMHC El Paso inaugurates its first Ronald McDonald Care Mobile. Through a partnership with Texas Tech the Care Mobile served the community for almost 4 years. The Care Mobile offered quality medical services free of charge to children who might not otherwise have access to healthcare.
  • In 2008, RMHC of El Paso opened a Ronald McDonald Family Room inside The Hospitals of Providence Children’s Hospital. In August 2016, RMHC opened another Family Room at Memorial Medical Center in Las Cruses. The room provides a place for respite and relaxation to family members and patients in the Pediatric, PICU and NICU areas of the hospital.
  • In 2019, RMHC celebrates its 35th year anniversary by launching the ‘Give 3 Nights’ Campaign. A gift of $35 will help a family stay at the Ronald McDonald House for 3 nights. Please donate by texting GIVE to (915) 800-3138.
