Our House is more than just a place to stay. In addition to 81 family bedrooms, the House offers first-class facilities that have been thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of families.

Frequently Asked Questions

While the actual cost to RMHC Toronto to accommodate one family is $183 per night, donations mean families are asked to contribute just $15 a night. A family is defined as up to two adults and their children.

Families wishing to stay at the House must be referred by a hospital social worker and complete an application form.

Families are added to the wait list the day they require a room. We are happy to accept post-dated referrals and applications. However, we receive referrals daily and can never really know what the day will bring. Families are placed in priority sequence first by inpatient, then by outpatient care, then by clinic visit. We then prioritize by distance, with families living furthest away being the highest priority. The priority list may change daily as new families are referred to the House or children are discharged from the hospital.

Children receiving medical treatment for a life-threatening or serious illness at SickKids or another local hospital are eligible to stay at the House.

Families who stay with us must live at least 55 km away from the House.
