About the Organization and Position:

For 50 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities has focused on caring for families so they can care for their children. In 1974, the first Ronald McDonald House opened to give families a place to stay when they came to Philadelphia, PA, for their child's medical care. Co-founder and pediatric oncologist Dr. Audrey Evans knew caring for and supporting the whole family when a child was sick was essential. Soon, this concept was replicated around the country. When the second Ronald McDonald House opened in Chicago in 1977, it birthed a global movement to care for families throughout their child's healthcare journey. Today, Ronald McDonald House Global Charities operates 690 programs in 62 countries.   Augusta’s RMHC Chapter opened its first House in 1984 to help families of critically ill children. The current beautiful multi-story, 23-bedroom House opened in 2015 and serves over 1,000 families each year, providing a safe, warm, and loving place for families to sleep, eat, and receive emotional support from caring professionals. The Augusta House is just steps from the Children's Hospital of Georgia. Family testimonials reflect RMHC Augusta's values of leading with compassion, demonstrating deep respect, acting with integrity, and being firmly committed to its mission. In 2023, RMHC Augusta served over 1,300 families with an average 65% occupancy rate. On average, families stayed eight nights, with the most extended stay at 103 nights. Those served annually are primarily high-risk pregnant mothers, parents of premature babies, and families with childhood cancer.

In addition to providing free housing for eligible families, RMHC Augusta's Family Support Services Program, provides daily meals, events, and programming for families. Adults and children enjoy the benefits of pet therapy, music and movie nights, unique guest visits, family photos, and more. RMHC Augusta's services even extend beyond the walls of its house. The RMHC Augusta Happy Wheels program brings books, fun activities, and toys on its hospitality cart to spread cheer and comfort to families in the hospital, even delivering these prized goods to the child's bedside.

Reporting to RMHC Augusta’s Board of Directors, the next CEO will develop and manage the organization’s $1 million annual budget while passionately leading its staff team of 6 FT and 10 PT employees. The CEO will work closely with the organization's leadership team - an Operations Director, Director of Development, and Director of Marketing and Community Engagement. The CEO will be responsible for the implementation of the organization’s strategic goals and to execute the new RMHC global impact plan at the chapter level.
