The Ronald McDonald House of Connecticut is a temporary “home away from home” for families of children who are being treated at nearby hospitals and healthcare facilities, such as the Children’s Hospital at Yale-New HavenYale-New Haven HospitalThe Hospital of St. RaphaelBridgeport Hospital. With a proper referral we will house the family of any child being treated in any nearby health facility.

We offer families the opportunity to be close to their child in a homey, supportive atmosphere. We have twelve bedrooms, a handicapped accessible kitchen, a dining room, a family room with all the amenities of a home, laundry facilities and off street parking. We are not a hotel or a dormitory; we are a cheerfully decorated Victorian home close to Yale-New Haven Hospital, the Hospital of St. Raphael and downtown New Haven. Frequently Asked Questions
