Ronald McDonald Houses

Ronald McDonald Houses serve as a “home-away-from-home” for families of children receiving care at nearby hospitals and medical facilities by providing inexpensive lodging for families who travel long distances while their children undergo treatment. Costs can be as little as $15 per day, and no family is ever turned away due to inability to pay.

The availability of the Ronald McDonald Houses alleviates the stress families would have to endure by sleeping on cots at the hospital or incurring the additional expense of finding a local hotel. Additionally, the facilities provide families with the added comfort of being surrounded by those who understand and can relate to the ordeal of having an ill child. In this supportive residence, parents can exchange stories over a cup of coffee in the kitchen while siblings bond with new friends in the playroom.
