The Ronald McDonald House (RMH) of Fort Worth currently provides housing to over 832 families with critically ill children in nearby hospitals. Each room provides two beds, a bathroom and an area where families can rest and regroup during their challenging time. Thanks to donations RMH is able to house and assist families with sick children, while placing little to no financial burden on them. Unfortunately, the current facility must turn away 10 to 15 families a week because its 38 rooms are generally occupied. With NMTC financing the construction of 20 new private rooms allows the RMH of Ft. Worth to house 300 more families each year. The addtional 20,000 sq. ft. of private space goes a long way in providing more peaceful nights for hundreds of families going through difficult times. Creation and/or retention of 100 construction jobs and 19 permanent jobs.
