Ronald McDonald House

Many families travel far from home to get the specialized medical treatment they need for their seriously ill or injured children. The treatment may last a day, a month, or even longer. It's a long time to be away from home, or to divide a family. For children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having their mom and dad close by for love and support.

Ronald McDonald House allow families to stay close by their hospitalized child. Our Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child - not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest. By staying at a Ronald McDonald House, parents also can better communicate with their child's medical team and keep up with complicated treatment plans when needed. They can just focus on the health of their child.
