Houston Texas Consulting began a “Wish List” drive for the Ronald McDonald House of Houston on Monday, January 2nd.
Houston's Ronald McDonald House offers loving, home-like environments, where families can find support and share experiences with others while on their journey to overcome a critical childhood illness. This mission has been the vision and driving force behind Houston's Ronald McDonald House for more than three decades. Today that vision has grown to include:
- Holcombe House a freestanding 50-bedroom home for longer term stays
- House inside Texas Children's Hospital (TCH) a home with 20 bedrooms
- House inside Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital a home with 14 bedrooms
- Three Family Rooms inside TCH
- "Cookie Corner" at M. D. Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital
When a critical illness strikes a child, the nearest treatment can be far from home in an unfamiliar medical center. The treatment likely requires long periods of hospitalization and extended periods of hospital-based therapy. The only solution for many families is to leave their home, friends and family behind in order to remain at their child's side and stay as close to the hospital as possible.
However, no health insurance plan has ever covered the additional expense of food and lodging while living far from home. Nor do they accommodate the special emotional needs of fearful parents and confused siblings. The best solution is to offer families a home away from home where they could be a family again, and enjoy a little privacy as well as the support of others experiencing a similarly anxious time.
Houston Texas Consulting supports the Ronald McDonald House’s vision that every child and family dealing with a critical illness will have a place they can stay and be close with their family during the hardship of dealing with the illnesses. The team at Houston Texas Consulting hopes to send boxes to the Ronald McDonald House overflowing!

Houston Texas Consulting is a leading sales and marketing company in the business-to-business market. Indirect channels of marketing, such as TV ads, radio ads, and direct mail, have created a personal gap between the product and the business consumer. Our firm bridges this detrimental gap by building lasting relationships through in-person contact with businesses. When compared to other forms of marketing, the benefits are invaluable.
Through the use of courteous, professional, and service-specific presentations we create a positive and lasting impression. Our approach enhances brand loyalty, which translates into increased revenues and long-term success.
Most organizations are built on an every-man-for-himself model. Even in a large company, everything is a solo deal. We are different. We know that teamwork pays off. No one succeeds alone. We know that our success is dependent on finding and developing solid team players. That is why we focus our own recruiting on identifying those with the inherent qualities to succeed: discipline, commitment, character, and personality. We look for the right type of person (who may or may not have experience), and then introduce personal and professional leadership principles to further their career. The result is success, and for a simple reason: our employees are continuing to learn and grow. If you're the kind of ambitious, energetic, charismatic pro we believe you are, you can be very successful here.
