Through your participation, openness and willingness to help you have shaped the future of AE Smith

The event was a great opportunity for families, RMH staff, volunteers and local community members to gather together at the House and commemorate the milestone.

RMH Monash Executive Officer Nickie Barlow said the event was a chance to thank all the generous donors and volunteers and look towards the next 20 years of the House.

“None of the work would be possible without the countless hours donated by hardworking volunteers or the generous donations of the community.

“We want to continue to offer families with a comfortable place to call home while their child undergoes treatment,” said Nickie.

Since opening in April 1993, RMH Monash close to Monash Medical Centre in Melbourne has provided accommodation and support for more than 125,000 individuals, including more than 5,300 families.

RMH Monash is one of seven Houses around Australia that AE Smith delivers pro bono air conditioning service and maintenance – taking thousands of dollars off annual running costs for each House.
