The Aurit Center’s vision to “light a path of hope and peace for families” goes beyond supporting spouses through a healthy divorce process. We believe in helping families overcome the most difficult circumstances.

This holiday season, The Aurit Center team of professional mediators, mediation coordinators, and their spouses were honored to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) in Phoenix. Together, we served over 60 parents and children a full-course, home-cooked meal.

Some of our greatest hits were marinara sauce made from scratch by Dina Horsman, Mediation Coordinator, homemade “muddy buddies” by Kristyn Carmichael, Assistant Director of Professional Mediation.

Families who benefit from the Ronald McDonald House travel far from home to receive treatment for their child at world-renowned hospitals located in metropolitan Phoenix. Their child’s treatment may last a few days, months, or sometimes longer. Often times, commuting or staying at a hotel is either impossible or financially challenging for a family. RMH provides low-cost, temporary housing near their child’s medical center, access to food, and other essential services to help families in need.

Aurit Center Co-Founders, Michael and Karen Aurit, support the Ronald McDonald House as they have been personally affected by family medical issues that require travel for treatment. In the spirit of helping parents and children overcome adversity, and in honor of Michael’s late brother, Danny Aurit, The Aurit Center for Divorce Mediation will continue to support the Ronald McDonald House and other charities that help families endure challenging times.
