The cornerstone of our charity is the Ronald McDonald House, which provides a home away from home, free of charge, for families with children who are seriously ill or facing life-threatening challenges. Staffed by volunteers and supported by generous donors, the House offers much more than just home-cooked meals and a comfortable place to stay. We help families face the burdens of childhood illness by providing a loving, compassionate environment where they can rest without having to worry about basic necessities. The support they receive from the house allows them to focus on what’s really important: their child’s recovery. It is also a place where families can connect with one another, sharing concerns, stories, hopes and encouragement.
