RMHC of Idaho operates three programs across Idaho including the Ronald McDonald House in Boise, Happy Wheels Hospitality Carts in Boise and Twin Falls, and the Ronald McDonald Family Room in Idaho Falls. The Family Room is located inside EIRMC and first opened its doors in September of 2019. Since opening, the Family Room has supported more than 1,200 families and had more than 7,000 visits.

The Family Room provides families with a home-like environment where they can get something to eat, take a shower, do laundry, watch television, take a nap, or even stay the night, all within steps of their ill or injured child. Any family with an ill or injured child at EIRMC is able to use the Family Room, whether they live right in Idaho Falls or traveled from outside the area. Having a child in the hospital is a huge financial burden for families. There is no cost for families to use RMHC of Idaho’s services and generous donations from the community make this possible. 100% of the funds raised stay local to support RMHC of Idaho programs.

Movie sponsors for the 2022 movie series are: Teton Toyota, Idaho Central Credit Union, Idaho Environmental Coalition and Intermountain Anesthesia. RMHC of Idaho has partnered with Riverbend Communications as the media sponsor for this year’s movie series.
